The GOP and Willie Horton: Together again 
Would Jeb have launched his father's racial campaign? 
A question for Jeb Bush. And this one isn’t about his brother. It’s about his father. Now that we know whether Jeb would have launched his brother’s invasion of Iraq — yes, I don’t know, I’m not saying, and no — I want to know if Jeb would have launched his father’s campaign against Willie Horton.

Why the final scene of "Mad Men" was clever and not stupid. Don DID make the Coke ad (via Slate).
It took no time at all for Mad Men fans to start debating the final scene of the series, which finds a newly peaceful Don meditating among a group of hippies in the hills of Big Sur. While the general consensus seems to be that Don was responsible for the iconic 1971...

Letterman: "Are you already fed up with Campaign 2016? Tina Fey called it a Jerk Parade. And there are only 550 days left."

Letterman: "Jeb Bush came out against same sex-marriage and in favor of Iraq war. He certainly is a different kind of Republican."

Just how many times was Jeb dropped on his head as a baby? My column: 
Would you let Donald Trump tell you where to get a haircut? Would you take driving tips from Lindsay Lohan? Or ask Sarah Palin’s advice about … anything?
