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.

    The robo-pollsters of Public Policy Polling have a new batch of battleground-state polls out today. The top-line findings are that Clinton holds very narrow leads among likely voters in Florida and North Carolina, and somewhat more comfortable (but still single-digit) leads in Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

    Donald Trump’s campaign is signaling that its new, post-first-debate message will be an attack on Hillary Clinton’s finances, under the catchphrase “Follow the money.” This is probably Trump’s most fruitful avenue of attack.

    The first presidential debate was a true test of one of the Trump campaign’s favorite strategies for handling criticism of the candidate: Declaring “I know Hillary Clinton is, but what is Trump?” Could they plausibly argue that it’s Clinton who’s the real sexist, not Trump, after millions of...More »]]>Margaret Hartmanndonald trumpearly and oftensexismpolitics<![CDATA[Congress Averts Government Shutdown With Two Days to Spare]]>, 29 Sep 2016 05:17:00 GMT

    One of the livelier, yet more obscure, disputes in Monday’s first presidential debate involved the police practice known as “stop-and-frisk” — warrantless stops of people suspected of criminal activity to search them for weapons.
