Rich Lowry / National Review:
Parting Ways  —  Anyone who has read Derb in our pages knows he's a deeply literate, funny, and incisive writer.  I direct anyone who doubts his talents to his delightful first novel, “Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream,” or any one of his “Straggler” columns in the books section of NR.

Derbyshire In 2003: I'm A Proud ‘Racist’  —  Over at the conservative blog RedState, diarist Leon Wolf notes that in a 2003 interview, the National Review's resident racist John Derbyshire proudly proclaimed his lack of tolerance for African-Americans:
Faiz Shakir / ThinkProgress:
In 2009, Derbyshire Argued Women Shouldn't Vote: ‘Women Voting Is Bad For Conservatism’  —  The National Review's John Derbyshire isn't just an avowed racist and a homophobe.  He's also a misogynist.  In 2009, he authored a book that contained a chapter titled “The Case Against Women's Suffrage.”
Discussion: Mock, Paper, Scissors
Josh Barro / The Barrometer:
Why National Review Must Fire John Derbyshire  —  Last week, National Review Editor Rich Lowry wrote a column arguing that the Trayvon Martin case is a distraction, because the real problem facing black Americans is black on black crime.  And on Monday, he complained that some people had called him a bigot for writing the column.
John Holbo / Crooked Timber:
Needless To Say?  —  I'm a bit puzzled by Rich Lowry's degree of confidence that no one at NR agrees with what the Derb wrote.  After all, the Derb himself is at NR.  He was posting there as of two days ago.  Does this mean he's out at NR?  Is Radio Derb going to cease broadcasting its message of freedom?
Paul Krugman:
On Ryan Apologists  —  In my next life I want to be a conservative policy scammer.  Think of how much nicer it would be.  Instead of constantly being accused of having evil motives, I'd be presumed to have noble intentions no matter how much the actual content of my policy proposals was at odds with such claims.
Eclectablog:
Michigan Republicans have ILLEGALLY passed over 96% (546) of their bills under “immediate effect”  —  It's much, much worse in Michigan than we even realized  —  Last night, Rachel Maddow broke a huge story that has been happening since Republicans took over in Michigan in 2011 and has gone completely under the radar.

Isn't it “marvelous?”  Obama seeks to define Romney for voters  —  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - When President Barack Obama criticized Mitt Romney by name this week for embracing a controversial Republican budget proposal, he worded his attack carefully and with bite.

ABCNEWS:
Mitt Romney Plans Multi-Million Dollar Pennsylvania Ad Buy  —  ABC News' Michael Falcone reports:  —  In an attempt to eject Rick Santorum from the presidential race by force, Mitt Romney's campaign will unveil a nearly $2 million television ad buy on the Pennsylvania airwaves beginning on Monday.

Scott Johnson / Power Line:
A sorry spectacle  —  Jay Cost takes a look back at Obama's public performances this week, as I did in “Twice in a lifetime,” and explains exactly what is happening: … Cost absolutely nails the Obama scenario and what it portends for our future in this terrific column.  —  UPDATE: Robert Stacy McCain comments here.

Tom Maguire / JustOneMinute:
Uncorrected: Charles Blow Finally Returns To The Scene Of His Journalistic Crime  —  When last he wrote on the subject of Trayvon Martin Charles Blow focused, appropriately, on the grief of a family in shock.  In so doing, however, he emphasized the implausibility of George Zimmerman's self-defense claim …
