- Tom DeLay faces three challengers in a primary to hold his seat this coming Tuesday. For the first time in many years, he actually stands a chance of losing, or at least being forced into an April 11 runoff. If the voters of the Sugarland area really want to send a message to the rest of us that they too are sick of the sleaze and corruption which Tom DeLay has inflicted on the Republican Party and the entire country, now's the time to send it. Go vote on Tuesday, and turn Tom DeLay out on his ear.

- Joe Gandelman has great coverage of a new threat from Bill Frist - apparently he's suggesting that if the Senate Intelligence Committee votes to hold hearings on the NSA wiretapping program, he will change the balance of power on the committee from its current equally-divided state to a lopsided, Republican-majority body like the rest of the committees. Joe's post includes commentary from others as well, so make sure to visit. Like Joe, I find this conduct by Frist utterly ridiculous, and hope all members of the Intel committee will stand up and do what needs to be done, not kowtow to the Administration and the majority leader. Stygius has more on this, as does Michael at Mighty Middle. You should also read the original post from Glenn Greenwald, who's done really excellent work on this story.

- Over at Maverick Views, Alan Stewart Carl's got a bunch of great posts: a new discussion of Michael Brown's role in the Katrina fiasco, the problem with Bush, and some good things coming out of the evangelical movement recently.

- Michael Reynolds thinks it's time for a world government.

Politically, I'd kind of like to have mid-trial Tom DeLay alive and kicking come November.
