The GOP Hates Governing More Than Planned Parenthood — The only good thing one can say about the fantasy world invented by Republicans at last week's debate was that most of it remains, for now, fantasy. But on Friday, a little piece of that mass hallucination materialized into our shared reality: the House voted 241-187 to block funding to Planned Parenthood.

How the ‘Party of Stupid’ Birthed Trump and Carson — At the start of the cycle, conservative soothsayers boasted of the " deep bench" on the right; governors of purple states, with proven records, were the headliners. Worries that a handful of first-term senators in the mix might suggest a lack of seriousness about the real work of governance were brushed off by pointing to Barack Obama as precedent.

Kim Davis is not a Christian Martyr: The Kentucky Court Clerk Deserves to be in the Clink. — There are going to be some people who celebrate scofflaw county clerk Kim Davis sitting behind bars. Most of them are her allies. Not even the American Civil Liberties Union lawyers wanted to send poor Kim to the pokey-likely because they wanted to deny her (and her allies) the exact image they've now been granted: the long-faced Davis in handcuffs, dourly professing that she loves Jesus more than she does the law.

Hillary vs. The World — There aren't going to be a lot of "Minnesota nice" jokes coming out of this weekend's Democratic National Committee meeting here in the Twin Cities. Sure, speakers did obligatory eye-pops at the promise of state fair food, made Garrison Keillor references, and sang Paul Wellstone praises.

Bill Bryson Fears Humans More Than Bears — Park rangers along the Appalachian Trail are preparing for a huge influx of visitors, thanks to the release of ''A Walk in the Woods,'' the movie based on your book about trying to hike the whole thing. What type of person do you think would see that movie and think, I want to do that, too?

Tyra Banks Isn’t Running a Democracy Here — You've been hosting ''America's Next Top Model'' for more than a decade. It gives you a unique vantage point on how reality television has influenced the people who consume it. How are the young people who audition for the show today different from those of 10 years ago?

Ice Cube Might Have Dinner With the President — In a trailer for ''Straight Outta Compton,'' the N.W.A. biopic that you co-produced, you say a lot of people don't realize that your music was a form of nonviolent protest. Is that because the nonviolent part wasn't very clear? I think it's very clear. We put our frustrations on a record, and we were creative.
