By now it is excruciatingly obvious who is ready to do whatever it takes to pull off a big election win. It’s not the right. We are more interested in giving this one away. Instead, it’s the left.

Is America such a bad place that imitating Europe is something to strive for?
We recently treated the world to the embarrassment of some wildly successful black people complaining about diversity in the industry that made them rich.
