Roger Ailes, the chairman and C.E.O. of Fox News, wants it known that he, not Larry McCarthy, sicced the dogs on Kentucky’s former Democratic Senator Walter (Dee) Huddleston in 1984. McCarthy, whose career I wrote about last week—he is now turning out negative ads for Restore Our Future, a pro-Romney Super PAC—worked closely with Ailes in the nineteen-eighties, and learned the art of political …

Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos: What’s Race Got to Do With It? – Speakeasy – WSJ

The recent success of Tim Tebow as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos has facilitated much dialogue among followers of NFL football and probably among many who don’t follow the sport closely.

Gingrich’s Phony War : The New Yorker

If the 2012 Presidential campaign were analogous to the Second World War—and, for the record, it’s really, really not—what stage would we have reached? And who would even think about it in those terms? The answer to the second question is Newt Gingrich, whose dark …
