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. It's...

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

gq.com — Photo: Alex Wong/Getty Images Today in Lynchburg, Virginia, Ted Cruz announced that he's running for president -becoming the first GOP heavyweight to officially enter the 2016 race for the White House. Already the move is earning the Texas Senator a prominent place in the news cycle.

Why Resignation Was a Fitting End to Rep. Aaron Schock's Career

gq.com — Photo: Nancy Stone/Chicago Tribune/Getty Images In the end, they hoisted him on his own odometer. After weeks of steadily damaging revelations-from theDownton Abbey office decorations to the taxpayer-funded first-class travel to the apparently gratis use of a fancy golf course for a fundraiser-Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock resigned today when Politico discovered that he'd padded the mileage on his expense reports: Schock billed the federal government and his campaign for logging roughly 170,000 miles on his personal car between January 2010 and July 2014.

Aaron Schock: The Freshman

details.com — "WHERE'S AARON?" It's a late-February afternoon on Capitol Hill, and Dave Natonski, a scruffy young congressional aide with looks reminiscent of Jim on The Office, is losing his cool. He's trying to locate 27-year-old U.S. representative Aaron Schock, six months his junior and yet the man he calls boss.

Why Hillary Clinton is Doubling Down on Her BlackBerry Picture

gq.com — Photo: Kevin Lamarque/AP Images Of all the ways in which Hillary Clinton spent the week telling her critics to go to hell, the most direct-even more direct than the defiant press conference where she finally addressed the kerfuffle over her email-is through her Twitter avatar.

The Guy Behind Obama's Smartphone Diagnosis Hillary's Dumb Move

gq.com — Photo: Win McNamee/Getty Images The news that Hillary Clinton never used a government email account while serving as Secretary of State and instead set up a private, "homebrew" email server at her house in Chappaqua, New York, has caused plenty of outrage in and out of government.

Aaron Schock's Lavish Congressional Life Is the Career He Always Wanted

gq.com — What's the deal with Aaron Schock-the Illinois Congressman currently in the news (and in political and legal peril) for his expensive tastes? I began wondering that six years ago-though at that time my curiosity had nothing to do with his hilariously decorated office or his penchant for first class travel.
