Dear Mitt: Please Pick Chris Christie

| Posted 08.02.2012 | Politics

Yes, I know the criticisms. Chris Christie is a hot-head and a showboat. He's overweight. He doesn't represent a key swing state. He'd be uncontrollable, in the way that Sarah Palin was uncontrollable.

Goodbye to Chick-fil-A

| Posted 08.03.2012 | Huffington Post

It was a private moment. I ate the sandwich first, knowing that if I was truly full, the logical thing to sacrifice would be the fries. As the salty-sweet crunch melted on my taste buds, I thought about all the calories I had consumed over the years.

Why Gun Control Isn't Working

| Posted 08.07.2012 | Politics

Gun advocates have successfully been able to make this a debate about FREEDOM, something that's impossible to argue against. Those of you looking to counter them need to find an equally unassailable position, and "Fuck this! We need to banish guns forever!" isn't it.

Unless you're a gullible 16-year-old, a 42-year-old Tea Partier or an 86-year-old former chairman of the Fed, you could probably use a primer on the mother of Objectivism, that Dostoevsky for dummies, Ayn Rand.

| Posted 08.15.2012 | Politics

Hogan Gidley, former Santorum spokesman and GQ's favorite sockless Republican strategist, calls in with these thoughts on Paul Ryan's much-talked about, mostly panned sense of fashion.

Famous People Give You 90 Reasons to Vote For Obama

| Posted 08.20.2012 | Politics

Are you a Democrat feeling uninspired about Obama? Don't worry: famous and/or smart people are at this very moment mustering to rescue you from the doldrums.

GQ Works Out With Paul Ryan

| Posted 08.22.2012 | Politics

I thought that I was in decent shape. Two or three visits to the gym each week, a combination of cardio and weights, shapely-ish biceps. Surely I could beat a 42-year-old congressman from Wisconsin in a battle of strength.

Paul Ryan Probably Hasn't Smoked Pot, and That's a Problem

| Posted 08.28.2012 | Politics

2012-08-27-scblog.png Being a pot virgin is a lot like being an actual virgin; it feels disconnected somehow. This is a communal rite for young Americans, something passed to others and shared, a way we practiced kindness. It matters, on some deep, silly level.

The GQ+A with Former RNC Chair Michael Steele

| Posted 08.29.2012 | Politics

Last night in the hallway of the Tampa Bay Times Forum we caught up with Michael Steele, sometime provocateur and recently shorn former chairman of the Republican National Committee, about Mitt Romney and the GOP's pitch to voters.

Paul Ryan and Condoleezza Rice Show Us a GOP That Can Win

| Posted 08.30.2012 | Politics

Mitt Romney's ultimate function in the 2012 election might be to put over the younger, more adept crop of candidates for 2016.

| Posted 08.31.2012 | Comedy

Destroy an entire army with the jawbone of a donkey, slay a nine-headed hydra with his bare hands, and cut social services to millions in need, only to have his supernatural power stripped away by a strumpet with haircutting shears.
