Getting the Paul Ryan they deserve

The late, oh, so lamented Doghouse Riley, used to often begin his most righteous screeds with something along the lines of, "Look, I know it's Slate and Michael Kinsey's experiment in double-reverse back flip of mid-level account rep libertarian contrarianism..."  But, really, is there anyone more of a forlorn fool than William Saletan?

Hiding under my desk, indeed

Oh, Jesis.

More seriously, the financial sector expects to be able to choose the next Republican presidential nominee. In the words of one political strategist, with Chris Christie on the rocks, ”The establishment is now looking for another favorite. . . . And by the establishment, I mean Wall Street.” At the moment, the big money is desperate enough to be looking at fringe candidates like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio (although what they most long for is the third coming of Bush). Basically, there are huge piles of cash looking for a friendly political home, and the level of hysteria is likely to surpass what we saw in 2012. We should at least get some entertaining quotes out of it.

Not bully enough, I guess

I'm sure glad that Alessandra Stanley, the Times TV critic, is looking out for presidential dignity.

More than any other president, Mr. Obama surfs the media, looking for new ways to reach viewers who don’t watch the news or even television. The president doesn’t seem worried about tarnishing the dignity of his office. As his tenure nears its end, he seems more intent on being the salesman in chief. 
 The president really should think about the children the traditional media outlets.
