The SOTU and the Iowa caucuses were big news this week, and so there are a lot of different takes on these stories as well as a lot of other good things:

  • Corrente should be a daily stop for everyone. Recent posts include an analysis of Bush’s approach to workforce development and relays of good posts by fellow TLC’ers Echidne of the Snakes on liberal anger and And Then… reporting from New Hampshire.
  • NTodd reports that he’s almost done with his training and will be back to blogging on a more regular basis soon. Can cat pictures be far behind?
  • Trish got an article published in American Politics Journal on the Massachusetts gay marriage ruling. Congratualtions, Trish!
  • Jesse at The Gotham City 13 does a very good job of picking apart the SOTU. Read it all.
  • Charles2 at The Fulcrum prefers getting his punditry from blogs. And why not? There’s some damn good writing in our own group, and it’s not monolithic by any means: we have Dean supporters, Kerry people, Clark backers, not to mention the rivalry between cats and dogs.
  • Alex at SoonerThought looks at seven myths about faith and politics. Excellent!
  • Rivka at Respectful of Otters PM’s Iowa very concisely. And not to make an unintentional pun, read on down to her very thoughtful article on euthanasia.
  • Kick the Leftist has an Ironic Quote entry that is far too good to pass up.
  • Keith at The Invisible Library tells us what he’s learned from literature.
  • BlogAmy has a new template…very nice!
  • Chris has some unique insights about Iowa. Chris’s site is always a great read – his humor is gentle and genuine, and his insights are wise beyond his years.
  • I welcome archy to TLC and present evidence as to why he is a worthy addition to our ranks.
  • And Wanda also joins us with her Words On A Page. Issues? Who has issues?
  • And there’s a lot more out there, too. Just click on the links on the sidebar to find them and enjoy!
