‘Hamilton’ Shames Running Mate of Man Who Believes the Same Things as Alexander Hamilton

In what is sure to be one of the most predictable and least encouraging stories about the state of politics in America today, Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed by the audience while attending a performance of “Hamilton” on Friday. As if this wasn’t enough, several cast members delivered a patronizing monologue about how they

Let’s Stop Being Angry Birds

The slow creep of social media censorship, epitomized by Twitter’s recent out-of-the-blue purge of various alt-right accounts, should be viewed with contempt as a scandalous abuse of corporate power. If it is so viewed, it will at least bring this incidental benefit: people will now realize how awful Twitter is, and always has been. Indeed,

The Art of Conservatism’s Deal

Donald Trump is either a day away from being the next president, or from being the most consequential nominee for the Republican Party brand since Barry Goldwater.

The GOP’s ‘Ungrateful Bastard’ Caucus

Donald Trump looks poised on the threshold of victory. After over a year of struggle, the Republican nominee has finally found his footing just as Clinton seems to have lost hers. At a time like this, when it looks obvious that putting a Republican in the White House might not be a lost cause—at least

Hillary’s Useful Idiots

She's laughing at you, not with you. #NeverTrump have become open saboteurs. Whether because of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s have-it-both-ways disavowal of the Republican Party’s nominee, or because of Ohio Governor John Kasich’s sponsored sabotage of Trump’s ground game in Ohio, or because they are already openly and gleefully speculating what comes after Trump
