Thursday Assorted Links

1. Melania Trump GQ Interview

2. The persecution of Dennis Hastert. Seriously, what’s being done to him is apalling.

3. AEI gets it right on Turkey and NATO

4. Trump’s foreign policy speech. Okay, but not fantastic. Too hawkish on Iran, but less so than Cruz. He definitely chose the right forum for it, as the National Interest is the only foreign policy outlet that’s more or less consistently readable. Trump’s a bit too neocon-leaning for my taste, though. Trump should say “Israel second” explicitly.

5. Want Cheaper Drugs?

6. Genetics of racial differences in intelligence

7. Picking a VP just before losing at the convention is the most Reaganesque thing Cruz has ever done

8. Trump hits the woman card
