Jots with dots March 12

Not treason, as if it needs be said again. http://www.vox.com/2015/3/12/8191209/tom-cotton-treason-logan-act-iran-letter The Stalin wing of the party of smart was pretty excited there about prospects of a jail term for Cotton. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/121279/tom-cotton-wont-be-prosecuted-gop-letter-iran

The scandal here is he uses an AOL account. http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2015/03/11/gov-dayton-uses-personal-email-for-work/ such an old person thing, so 90’s.

    forget about the Obamacare alternative issue, and consider what he says about the differences between the GOP and the Dems. This is the nub of his argument:
    “The point, rather, is that the two parties are not mirror images of each other. They are asymmetrical. One is organized around practical objectives, the other ideological ones. Practical objectives lend themselves more easily to compromise. They can be measured in empirical terms. Ideological objectives defy compromise and practical assessment.”
