Today on, Jordan Bloom interviewed now-Republican Artur Davis and chided the GOP for failing to live up to its own principles. Michael Brendan Dougherty reflected on the rise of non-interventionism as a principle in the Republican Party, and brought us delightful anecdotes from Paul LePage’s testy Tea Party governorship in Maine.

Daniel Larison continued to unpack the foreign policy myopia of the Romney camp (RNC night two reax here) and Scott Galupo and Rod Dreher found little to love in Chris Christie’s keynote speech. Finally, Henry Chappell found more value in the wisdom of the ancients than in the biological determinism of Chris Mooney.
