The unfunniest senator

The Autumn 2017 problem of Metropolis Journal is forthcoming from the Manhattan Institute. It carries my quick column “The unfunniest senator.” The column is about Al Franken and his McCarthyite ruminations on two of President Trump’s judicial nominees. Given the timeliness of the column within the context of Franken’s contribution to the blue slip controversy this week, the editors have made the column out there on-line this afternoon. Please test it out.

I’m grateful to editors Brian Anderson and Paul Beston for his or her care with the column and for locating room for it it on this problem of the journal. It seems within the problem together with Heather Mac Donald’s good cowl story “Are all of us unconscious racists?,” which the editors have positioned on-line as a preview.

Metropolis Journal is the Manhattan Institute’s fantastically produced quarterly journal of commentary on politics, legislation, tradition and historical past. Though it’s a quarterly, it at all times appears to me prefer it’s on prime of the information of the day. Often that includes the work of Heather Mac Donald, Myron Magnet, Stefan Kanfer and Theodore Dalrymple, amongst others, it’s a exceptional journal. Readers can subscribe right here.
