Introducing ‘Lagniappe’

I’ve often wished I could wake up and have someone send me a list of articles and columns that are worth reading during the morning commute. With that in mind, I’m going to do it for you. Each morning — usually before 8 a.m. — I’ll post a “Lagniappe.”

A lagniappe, in case you’re scratching your head, is a tradition from Cajun Louisiana where a small gift is given with each purchase. In this instance, you don’t have to buy a thing! Just visit here each morning and you’ll see what I think are the essential readings to start your morning. Here’s a preview of what you can expect to see each weekday morning:


Human Events: “In a Jimmy Stewart moment, supporters should defend Senate filibuster rule

New York Post: “What is O’s Case: It’s sure not the economy”

The Atlantic: “Hey Voters: The Kill List is What Matters”

Hot Air: “Noted constitutional scholar Nancy Pelosi: I know that ObamaCare will be upheld” 

National Review: “A Sobering Farce

Commentary: “Edwards Verdict Averts a Miscarriage of Justice”

The American Conservative: “The Great Plutocracy”


Feel free to contact me with suggestions for the next day’s Lewis’s Lagniappe.

And as always, your input is welcome on anything I write.

Here’s how you can provide your two cents: You can comment on the thread below (if it’s insightful enough, I might address it directly), email me at comments[DOT]mattlewis[DOT]dailycaller[AT]gmail[DOT]com (remember, there’s no word limit)or tweet me @MattKLewis and/or my intern (Justin) @JGreenDC
