The Panic Over the D.C. Nerd Prom Is What Makes Washington Ridiculous

gq.com — Not that I was missing anything. The White House Correspondents' Dinner is the annual event that features the president telling his own lame jokes, and then sitting through a comedian (this year Cecily Strong will do the honors) making fun of him, while members of the press-who typically invite Hollywood celebrities and well-heeled advertisers as their guests-eat bad food and look at their watches waiting to get to the glamorous after-parties.

The Lost Love Letter Ted Cruz Wishes He Never Wrote

gq.com — For a gentleman painter currently whiling away his days in a ritzy Dallas neighborhood, George W. Bush casts a long shadow over the Republican presidential field.

Why Rubio vs. Jeb Will Become the GOP Title Fight

gq.com — Earlier this year, as Jeb Bush hopscotched across the country from one big-dollar fundraiser to the next, his aides gave a name to his strategy. They called it "shock and awe"-the goal being, as they explained to The Wall Street Journal at the time, to essentially cow the rest of the GOP presidential field into submission by hoovering up all the available campaign cash and locking down all of the major donors.

Is Hillary Any Good at Running for President? -- NYMag

nymag.com — A lot can happen between now and then, but barring something truly unprecedented and totally unforeseen - a meteorite, a Benghazi revelation, a health scare, or a Martin O'Malley groundswell - on July 28, 2016, Hillary Clinton will step onto a stage in Philadelphia.

Forget Mercer. Forget Lehigh. Forget Christian Laettner. The best Duke loss of all time came against LSU in 2006.

slate.com — For Duke haters like myself, there's no number more hateful than four. Sure, Mike Krzyzewski has won more than 1,000 games (as those tacky Coach 1K shirts constantly remind us), but approximately 842 of them have come against the likes of the Presbyterian Blue Hose and the Elon Phoenix.

The Man Who Would Make Ben Carson President

gq.com — I was about a month into reporting my profile of Ben Carson when it finally dawned on me why I'd been given so much access to the pediatric-neurosurgeon-turned-presidential-candidate. I was watching Barack Obama's State of the Union address with Carson in the Capitol Hill home of Carson's business manager and gatekeeper, Armstrong Williams, when I noticed an unusual picture hanging to the left of the television.

The Tea Party's Great White House Hope

gq.com — Until two years ago, Ben Carson was a mild-mannered neurosurgeon-a hero to black America, the subject of a tender made-for-TV movie. Then he started raving about Nazis and America's demise. Now he's the Tea Party's great White House hope-and the GOP's worst nightmare.

Here's How Ted Cruz Can Actually Win

I dug up a love letter Ted Cruz wrote to George W. Bush in 2004. That Cruz sounds different from today's Cruz: gq.com/blogs/the-feed…
