Here’s what the Loop is reading this morning:

Whole lotta crazy — Is there something in the water? There are an awful lot of eccentric antics among lawmakers this year, from shirtless photos on Craigslist to rambling Bob Dylan quotes. Our colleague Ed O’Keefe has the recap.

Leading lady — Here’s a fun fed job: Kelly Maltagliati is the special agent who heads the effort to uncover lost treasures from the National Archives. Movie idea, anyone?

Teeing off a new era? — Condi Rice is joining the previously men-only Augusta National golf club. Sally Jenkins says the addition will class up the joint.

All-nighters — The group of delegates crafting the GOP’s party platform has begun meeting. Their task is a “48-hour marathon of debate over philosophy and propositions” during which they’ll “write a 50- to 60-page manifesto that defines what it means to be a Republican.” No pressure or anything really.
