Freebie of the Day

Every morning (well, Monday through Friday) I get an email known as the Morning Jolt. It's written by Jim Geraghty, who writes the Campaign Spot blog for National Review Online. I will freely admit that it's the email I most look forward to receiving each morning (I'm more than a little resentful that Geraghty doesn't suck it up and shoot one of these out on Saturdays and Sundays--and he TOOK TIME OFF when his wife had a baby, which also sent me into withdrawal). I've recommended signing up for it before. I'm doing it again. Follow this link and you can sign up for all of National Review's newsletters. I get all of them; if you are only going to get one, make it Morning Jolt. Geraghty is an expert on election issues, political races, policies, and so on. He's funny and entertaining. His newsletter reads more like an email from a like-minded friend than a political column that you read because you know it's good for you.

The Goldberg File is the next newsletter on the list. It comes once a week (is it Thursday already?) and is for Jonah Goldberg fans. If you're not a fan, don't bother. I LOVE Jonah, but I always have the feeling he's annoyed that he has to write this so he phones it in a lot of the time. But, you know, Jonah will be making 'em laugh on his deathbed so it's funny and about every other one he'll post a link that I find worthwhile.

The NRO Digest is the email that I delete without opening. NOT because it's not a great email, but just because I live on the National Review web site all day long and get all the information there. If you're not addicted like I am and want an email that points out some of the most worthy posts/columns/articles, it's definitely one to get.

Finally, the NRO Originals newsletter provides links to "classic" National Review articles from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Sometimes I read 'em, sometimes I don't. If you are such a political or NR junkie that reading forty-year-old articles sends a tingle down your leg, subscribe.

More later...
