Andrew Klavan dishes up biweekly satirical commentary on an American political culture that has lost its logical, philosophical and moral way. Using an original blend of comedy and journalism—augmented with creative visuals—Klavan seeks to re-discover the first principles that have made America and the west unique as well as uniquely great. He focuses on how conservative values do and don’t fit into within the constructs of the mainstream. Rooted in sound logic and good-natured humor, Klavan’s digitorials illustrate why conservatives have a love-hate relationship with popular culture.
