How Michael Pietsch stitched together The Pale King. I’m reading this now; a post on it may be forthcoming if I find the time. No promises!

* Nate Silver may be right that the fortuitous discovery of 8000 Prosser votes by a known partisan hack may be incompetence, not corruption, but nonetheless the whole situation seems carefully crafted to infuriate me as much as possible. Investigations, such as they are, are underway.

* Government shutdown looming. What could go wrong? TPM has three possible outcomes, while Ezra Klein reminds you (in case you needed the reminder) what Planned Parenthood actually does. Walking back his lies to the contrary, the odious John Kyl sums up the whole of conservative ideology in just seven little words: “not intended to be a factual statement.”

* When anti-gay activists change their minds. Don’t miss his official retractions.

* And education “reform” takes a hit in New York City.
