Him & 'Her'Him & ‘Her’

Director Spike Jonze has made the weirdest, most timely romance of the year—in which Joaquin Phoenix’s character falls in love with an operating system. And, as with so many love stories, the making of the movie was equal parts turbulence and passion.

Antonin ScaliaIn Conversation: Antonin Scalia

On the eve of a new Supreme Court session, the firebrand justice discusses gay rights, media echo chambers, and how much he cares about his intellectual legacy (“I don’t”).

    Two weeks ago, the New York Times reported that Donald Trump’s focus groups found voters frequently use two words to describe their candidate: “unqualified” and “racist.” This assessment, while encouragingly on-point, presents a serious obstacle to the Trump campaign. And so it has set out to mitigate this...More »]]>Jonathan Chaitthe national interesthillary clintondonald trumppoliticscampaign 2016More<![CDATA[The Supreme Court Is on the Cusp of a Liberal Revolution]]>, 23 Aug 2016 20:54:07 GMT

    It’s a commonplace observation that control of the future shape of the Supreme Court is one of the high-stakes consequences of the 2016 presidential election.

    Donald Trump’s white working-class support might have some unexpected holes in key battleground states — specifically, among Americans of Eastern European heritage who are likely to look askance at the mogul’s man-crush on Vladimir Putin and his expressed reluctance to defend potential victims of Russian aggression.

    The Clinton Foundation is hardly a large or unique source of corruption in American politics. It is, however, a source of grubby, low-level access headaches.

    According to Colin Powell, in addition to being ethically challenged, Hillary Clinton is somewhat incompetent. At an event in the Hamptons over the weekend, the former George W.
