Campaigning for Dick

Many moons ago, when I visited the Smithsonian’s American History museum as a lad, one of the things I remember most about that trip was seeing the section on political memorabilia. From Eisenhower’s “I Like Ike” ad to many customized...


politics: what women want

Seen on the front page of this week’s Washington Examiner. Headlines/covers like this crack me up. I imagine there have been a great many GOP conventions with sessions and workshops described exactly like this. “What [Women, Minority, Gay, etc.] Voters...

work: this is getting to be a habit
