Happy Wednesday.

Kurt Schlichter writes over at Breitbart that conservatives ignore Lena Dunham's 'Girls' at their own peril. His point is a good one: you can't retake culture if you can't discuss it. My related point: even if conservatives don't like current state of culture, setting ourselves up as nothing other than unengaged critics is unlikely to win any friends (or voters). We don't have to like Hollywood, but we should recognize that most other people do and they're not going to be very receptive to conservatives or conservative ideas if all they hear from conservatives is knee-jerk opposition. This is the second time this issue has come up in the context of 'Girls' and both Ace's and NakedDC's takes on the 'Nazi Republican' issue illustrate it well. It's okay to come at these things sideways.

Washington Post says the sequester cuts are probably going to happen and that's making Sen. Graham a sad panda. I'm down with it.

If you didn't get to hear Sen. Rubio on Rush Limbaugh yesterday, here's the transcript. El Rushbo was much less critical of the proposed bipartisan plan than he was the day before.
