The Next President

My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: This morning, my 5-year-old daughter asked me, “Dada, who is going to be the next president?” “Well, it’s either going to be a criminal, or a liar,” I told her. “You’re joking, right?” “No, actually, I’m not.” She […]

How To Stop The System

From Republicans, we’re told that a vote for anyone but Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton. From Democrats, we’re told that a vote for anyone but Hillary Clinton is a vote for Donald Trump. Therefore, by voting for neither of them, I am actually voting for both of […]

High Ideals and Dumb Politics

Hillary’s Logic

My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: Last week, for the first time in this election cycle, I tuned in to the Democrat primary debate. It was an interesting experience, listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders basically agreeing that the U.S. economy should be […]
