National Review — A Stupid GOP Electorate Takes a Pass on the Best Governor in the 2016 Field Alright. I'm ready to just burn down the primary process. Do you why I was such a big Bobby Jindal fan? Look at the condition of his state the day he took office, and look at the condition of his state now.

I’m Afraid the Children Are Our Future. — I'm Afraid the Children Are Our Future. [Originally published October 26, 2004.] I'm seeing them again this election season. Little headlines in parenting magazines, mentions in the preschool newsletter, even casual comments in the e-mails of friends who have small kids. "Vote for your children," they say, or "Vote for kids!"

National Review — Bevindicated! This is one of the joys of politics -- the voters get the final say, and sometimes they surprise you. Matt Bevin became the first governor from Louisville in a century and Lt. Gov.-elect Jenean Hampton became the first African-American to win statewide office in Kentucky on Tuesday as Bevin led a near-Republican rout of state constitutional offices.

National Review — Happy Back to the Future Day -- October 21, 2015. Marco Rubio points out that the Democrats are focusing on the future with . . . Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. Wait, no Bernie Sanders, Senator? Separately, Doc Brown is allegedly going to help Carly Fiorina today.

RT @bdomenech: Great comments by @jimgeraghty on Star Wars and the decay of the Empire. Never forget TK-421.…

National Review — Maybe We Won't Just Hand Afghanistan Back to the Taliban After All Good heavens, is it possible that President Obama just . . . made a good decision? Can he still do that? President Obama will keep 5,500 U.S.

National Review — Who Do You Want to Replace John Boehner? Okay, grassroots conservatives, here's your chance. You wanted John Boehner out as Speaker, and now he's on his way out. Right now the buzz is that House majority leader Kevin McCarthy is a slam-dunk to replace him.

RT @DouglasLevene: @jimgeraghty calls out the "conservatives" who are willing to jettison the Constitution to supress Islam in the US.…

A Note to Parents from Bruce Springsteen, High School Cross-Country Coach. — John Moe's Pop Song Correspondences A Note to Parents from Bruce Springsteen, High School Cross-Country Coach. [Originally published November 9, 2010.] Dear Parents, I understand some of you are concerned about the practices we've been running so I wanted to take a moment to explain why I'm taking this admittedly unusual approach that I'm taking.

Ways I’ve Let Down Popular Musicians. — Lists Ways I've Let Down Popular Musicians. [Originally published August 22, 2007.] Disappointed Chrissie Hynde by continuing to sob. Permitted sun to go down on Elton John, thus failing him. Failed to heed warning to stop in the name of love, broke Diana Ross's heart.

“Of the Month” July 2015 — Comic Book of the Month: Junior Braves of the Apocalypse by Michael Tanner & Greg Smith A troupe of "Junior Braves" (think Boy Scouts) heads into the mountains for a retreat, only to return to town to discover that a zombie-like apocalypse has happened in their absence.

A Note Placed in the Pay Envelope of Billy “The Piano Man” Joel. — John Moe's Pop Song Correspondences A Note Placed in the Pay Envelope of Billy "The Piano Man" Joel. Hi, Billy, It's hard to find time to talk at the club since I'm busy managing the place and you're at the piano. And we need to talk.

Training my dog to do tricks. Explaining that instead of treats, she'll get valuable exposure. No luck. I guess she's not a real artist.
