Good reading from various places:
Majikthise threads her way through some thorny issues: chickenhawk hypocrisy, the problem with liberals opposing 'sleaze' on TV, and who can cry racism.
Ten questions to ask your history teacher, and God: a Career Retrospective (both via).
Publius thinks about the Iraqi constitution from a Madisonian perspective.
The Nation on the problem of the institutional encrustation of the pro-war Democrats, and related article from The American Prospect on the responsibility of pro-war pundits.
James Wolcott pairs two texts on the Iraq war -- one from highly noted academic Immanuel Wallerstein from what can only be described as his blog (albeit a blog avant la lettre). Who knew?
David Morse at TomDispatch on how oil is driving the genocide in Darfur.
Jason Kuznicki on How Not to Make Me Ex-Gay (via).
Digby on one thing that's helping create the Democrats' image problem, and how to start fixing it. (And, from a while back, on Bush's ongoing lies and the press's refusal to call him on them.)
Shakespeare's Sister does some necessary critiquing of friends-we-don't-need.
And lastly, another web comic I can recommend, Hereville by Barry Deutsch (of Alas, a blog fame) which demonstrates, among other things, that "troll killing is just not a Shabbos thing". Start here.
Update: links added.
