What do you give a guy who owns nine homes, made $60 million last year and wants to be governor of Illinois?
I decided to give him the gift of music.
After all, a guy who loves Wrangler jeans and Carhartt coats as much as Bruce Rauner does would probably enjoy blasting a good country song over the stereo in his 20-year-old van.
So last weekend I wrote the only song in the world that mentions charter schools, the bourgeoisie and reproductive rights.
When Colorado voters in 2012 approved a ballot measure legalizing marijuana, the state did not merely break new ground in the ongoing battle over narcotics policy. It also bolstered an innovative new political message that compares cannabis to alcohol. Two years later, that comparison is being deployed in key marijuana-related elections throughout the country, and drug reform advocates are so sure marijuana is safer than alcohol, they are now challenging police to a "drug duel" to prove their point.

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ)
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may have complained about being misunderstood on the minimum wage, but workers at the diner where he was speaking say he's the one who doesn't understand. Pushed to explain his comments that he was "tired of hearing about the minimum wage," Christie just repeated himself on the substance, while adding some partisan attacks on President Obama as a "class warrior" and that complaint about being misunderstood: "My comments are never almost universally interpreted the way I mean them." Gosh, why don't people just believe in the goodness of his bullying little heart, no matter what he actually says or does?
“Maybe he should take one of our jobs for a week, like a training program, and try to itemize your bills,” said waitress Stacey Ellis, 32, after Christie insisted his words were misconstrued.
“He’ll know it’s not enough,” she continued.
