* Matt Taibbi: The People vs. Goldman Sachs.

* Slavoj Žižek: Our situation is thus the very opposite of the classical twentieth-century predicament in which the Left knew what it had to do (establish the dictatorship of the proletariat, etc.), but simply had to wait patiently for the opportunity to offer itself. Today, we do not know what we have to do, but we have to act now, because the consequences of inaction could be catastrophic.

* Rand Paul has one of the best “freedom is slavery” riffs to come along in some time.

* Democrats retake edge in generic ballot. It’ll be interesting to see how the Democrats manage to squander the opportunity if they do retake the House.

* And Florida Republicans just accidentally outlawed sex. Nice work.
