Read Stuff, You Should: Republicans and Foreign Policy

Jonathan Bernstein's morning links.

Happy Birthday to Diane Franklin, 53.

Let’s get to the good stuff:

1. Byron York at the Washington Examiner on the Republican 2016ers and foreign policy.

2. Russell Berman at the Atlantic profiles three long-shot Republicans (what I call Bateson candidates).

3. Dan Drezner at the Washington Post on Ukraine.

4. At the Monkey Cage, Kristin Smith Diwan on “The future of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Gulf.”

5. Noah Berlatsky answers my question about why Republicans attack congressional leaders. Plausible.

6. And Seth Masket at Mischiefs of Faction takes on a defender of California's top-two system.
