Well folks, we've shaken off our holiday stupor, it's the new year, and we are Back At Work. Just like Congress! To celebrate, we're featuring Chris Lehmann's excellent salvo on David Brat, the figurehead of "the Tea Party's marquee 2014 success story." Just who is this guy, and what does he really believe? What can we learn from his published scholarship, which Lehmann found "actually quite lively and interesting"? Find out here.

We're also now hard at work on our next print issue, number 27. We are excited because it's our first issue that we're publishing as an independent nonprofit, and we're a little baffled because it turns out that its theme is fashion. Yes! If you haven't already, now would be a great time to subscribe.
