Eons ago, when Republicans still ran Congress and the punditariat asked why America’s lacrosse players had such a penchant for rape, I swooped in to Wonkette and blogged for a vacationing Alex Pareene. Everything’s different now, but for today and Monday, while Ken Layne is out of town, I – Dave Weigel of Reason magazine – will be pinch hitting. Over the last few months I’ve written about why Hugh Hewitt crushes on Mitt Romney, why some Republicans are sweeter than others, why we need as much money in politics as humanly possible, and why General Sherman had the right idea about the South. And you get two whole days of this! Enjoy.
