Conservative editors team up against immigration bill — William Kristol and Rich Lowry have been at odds on immigration reform in the past. But today they’ve teamed up to write an opinion piece (click here to read it on Weekly Standard and here to read it on National Review) urging House Republicans to “kill the bill.” Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, has been in favor of reform while Lowry, editor of National Review, has been opposed. Nonetheless, the Gang of Eight bill recently passed by the Senate, has brought them together in explaining how there should be no urgency in passing reform. They argue that the bill is complex and was hastily passed without real examination of the real-world effects it would have. “If you think Obamacare and Dodd-Frank are going swimmingly, you’ll love the Gang of Eight bill,” they write.

Why you should read it: The team of Kristol and Lowry present a well-researched and thorough argument against the Gang of Eight bill as well as a look at where the GOP’s focus should be. Whether you’re for or against the bill, this piece is worth reading.

Do sex scandals matter anymore? — Mark Sanford. Anthony Weiner. And now Eliot Spitzer. Kevin Mahnken of TNR examines this year’s crop of out-of-the-ashes politicians who returned to the campaign trail in 2013 after falling from office at the hands of sex scandals, and what it means for sex scandals in politics going forward. No more is turning “hiking the Appalachian Trail” into an innuendo a political career-killer. And Weiner’s campaign seems to be going better than anyone imagined it would. With Spitzer’s announcement Sunday that he is running for New York City comptroller, which Mahnken notes is a “rather humble municipal office,” makes NYC the city that will determine whether voters care about sex scandals, even if they involve “a taste for expensive call girls,” as in Spitzer’s case. Mahnken also tries to tie the fact that politicians’ marital skills aren’t as important in elections to “the historical move away from laws prohibiting adultery, miscegenation, sodomy, gay marriage, and (probably, let’s face it) polygamy.”

Why you should read it: Do the words “sex scandal” mean anything to you? Mahnken’s piece focuses on three. It also raises an interesting point about redemption and the notion that politicians’ marital mistakes, however heinous and sometimes illegal, may not be an ultimate career-killer.
