Over the weekend, I wrote for The Federalist about Washington, the Episcopal Church, and the purpose of history and memory.
Bowe Bergdahl is guilty, no matter what President Trump has to say about him. My latest at The Federalist.
What if the reason your party loses elections isn’t gerrymandering? What if it’s just that no one wants to vote for you? My latest article at The Federalist takes on the idea that gerrymandering permanently rigs elections.

Two new articles today:
- At Hardball Times, I looked at what the “Replacement” in “Wins Above Replacement” means, and highlighted a few players whose careers fit the bill.

Today at The Federalist, I wrote about Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against the New York Times and why it should go to trial.
Today at National Review, I reviewed Richard White’s The Republic for Which It Stands: The United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, 1865–1896, which is due to be released next month. White re-examines a period in the nation’s history with many parallels to our current time. If you like American history, it’s a good book for you.
