A few shards from my Monday-morning web trails:

We all know you are startingly delusional, Blago. But you could at least have the sense to avoid emitting your gaseous egotism in front of wry writers like David Remnick.

DoubleX capably destroys Michael Gerson's off-note column on modern 20-something relationships.

My Politics Daily colleague Delia Lloyd defends "nanny-state" interventions into our deteriorating individual health. I kind of agree.

In memory of the departed neocon Irving Kristol, The New Republic is featuring some of his pieces from their archives, including this meditation on the superiority of Washington, D.C. over New York. It was 1988 and he was mostly wrong, but he was also partly right.

Carrie Prejean all but reenacts a scene from Saved! when she suggests God will reward her lost pageant crown with a bigger one in heaven.

A book to look forward to.
