On The DMZ: Matt argues that libertarian populism is not the right path for conservatism. Is the concept itself oxymoronic? What are the alternatives for the future of conservatism? Bill and Matt debate debates—should the GOP have fewer 2016 presidential debates with more ideologically friendly moderators? They read the tea leaves on Marco Rubio’s latest maneuverings. Plus: Should we be happy that Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post?

Foreign Entanglements
On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Bryan discuss concerns and myths about AirSea Battle. They consider whether ASB should be regarded as an anti-Army power play, whether it would increase the chances of war with China, whether it demands a particular strategic outlook, and whether the United States could afford ASB. They close by speaking about the dire impact of the sequester on the US defense community.

The Glenn Show
On The Glenn Show, the first topic is the fallout from the Zimmerman trial. Did activists err by making the case into a cause célèbre? Has Zimmerman himself been racially profiled by his critics? Glenn and Ann weigh the merits of stop-and-frisk policing. Turning to the travails of Anthony Weiner, Glenn doesn’t know what’s wrong with sexting. Wasn’t Eliot Spitzer’s behavior worse? Finally, they discuss the conservative backlash against the Supreme Court’s DOMA ruling, which caused a major rift between Ann and her blog’s commenters.
