Jeb Bush may actually have a shot at the Republican nomination.

slate.com — BEDFORD, New Hampshire-George W. Bush never really suffered for his sins. But his kid brother sure has. The demise of Jeb Bush has been a source of immeasurable pleasure for, well, nearly everyone. His campaign is a nine-figure boondoggle that suckered cronies from Greenwich and Dallas into investing in a can't-miss-opportunity.

‘A Voice Still Heard: Selected Essays of Irving Howe’

nytimes.com — A voice still heard. What a sad, anxious assertion of the great critic's relevance. Alas, the claim is not terribly true, not anymore. A generation ago, Irving Howe's voice rattled around the brain of the American intellectual. When writers sat down to compose essays, they were already imagining the postcard of praise they might receive from Howe.

Fog of War | New Republic

newrepublic.com — A day earlier, The New Republic had published a piece titled "Shock Troops." It appeared on the magazine's back page, the "Diarist" slot, which is reserved for short first-person meditations. "Shock Troops" bore the byline Scott Thomas, which we identified as a pseudonym for a soldier then serving in Iraq.

Marion Barry Dead at 78: A Look at His Political Comebacks

newrepublic.com — If you care about Washington, you inevitably expend enormous quantities of breath defending the place. You develop a long enemies list. There are the populist bullies, such as George W. Bush, who bash the inside-the-Beltway mentality.

How The New Republic Was Founded

newrepublic.com — I. On a fall night in 1914, Theodore Roosevelt summoned the young editors of a yet-unpublished magazine to the seat of his ex-presidency, his estate on the north shore of Long Island. The old Bull Moose had caught wind of the new project and wanted to make sure that the editors had the full benefit of his extensive wisdom.

Amazon's Monopoly Must Be Broken Up: A Radical Plan for the Tech Giant

newrepublic.com — Before we speak ill of Amazon, let us kneel down before it. Twenty years ago, the company began with the stated goal of creating a bookstore as comprehensive as the great Library of Alexandria, and then quickly managed to make even that grandiloquent ambition look puny.

Ferguson's Lesson: Local Government Poses the Real Threat to Liberty

newrepublic.com — The libertarian's jeremiads about creeping tyranny often seem the ravings of a paranoid. Then along comes Ferguson to confirm the dark warnings: Warrior cops stalk suburban streets, dressed in Desert Storm green and wielding automatic weapons aimed to fire. They detain journalists, hurl smoke bombs into unarmed crowds, and bury incriminating details.
