ELEPHANT HUNTING. I'm admittedly biased because I have written a couple of pieces (as has Ezra) for Ryan Sager's new online politics site at the New York Sun -- not to mention, Sager's book about Republicans' increasingly dicey status in the Interior West, The Elephant in the Room, is an obvious complement to arguments from my own book -- but if you want to find solid, daily coverage of the GOP presidential primary contest, Sager's Latest Politics beat at the Sun is pretty darn good.

I may be reading a bit too much into Sager's posts, but he seems to have an affinity for Fred Thompson, about whose potential entry into the GOP field Sager writes today. Worth checking out.
