Numerous cities and school districts in Michigan are now run by single, state-appointed technocrats.

American Politicians Are Telling New Lies About the Iraq War

A couple of weeks ago Jeb Bush told Fox News he would have invaded Iraq if he had been president in 2003. His remark and the responses of many of his critics show that the political class is just as calculating and self-interested now as it was then, writes Gary Younge at The Guardian.
