The Corner

NY 4

From a reader:

No one in pundit-land has taken this race seriously.  Carolyn McCarthy won 65% of the vote in 2008.  However, she is an undistinguished, 7 term, Congresswoman with a 97% Pelosi voting record in a district that has significant Republican and conservative voting pockets.  She is facing Fran Becker, from Lynbrook (one of those conservative pockets) who has, with virtually no money or national backing, managed to develop grass roots momentum and enthusiasm, particularly in the significant Orthodox Jewish community.  With the Governor and Senate races virtually uncontested, the question is, how many democrat voters will bother to show up today?  If Becker pulls this off, it will be a VERY long night for the Democrats.  I would not rule it out.

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, will be released on April 24.

What Self-Help Guru Tony Robbins Was Trying to Say

Tony Robbins must have known immediately that he'd made a huge mistake in how he responded to a question about #MeToo. Last month, at one of Robbins's popular, sold-out seminars, audience member Nanine McCool told the self-help guru that she thought he misunderstood the #MeToo movement. You can see the entire ...
