Do We Need a New Third Political Voice?
Colbert roasts Matt (viewer discretion advised!)
Welcome to my web site, where I'm hoping we can save the republic together while having a little fun in the process. In that spirit you'll find here my Washington Post columns, details on our public radio show "Left, Right & Center," my new podcast "This...Is Interesting," and samples of my growing TV work.
You can also find information on the two books I've written—The Two Percent Solution: Fixing America's Problems In Ways Liberals And Conservatives Can Love (2003); and The Tyranny Of Dead Ideas: Revolutionary Thinking For A New Age of Prosperity (2009). Both were long-term "idea" books and remain relevant today. You can learn more about the books and see some of the press coverage here.
I've also posted some favorite articles from my archives, and—just to keep you on your toes—my children's poetry (that's right, children's poetry—have a look!). There's a section with fun stuff I've written with (or about) my wife, Jody. And another on my well-intended but notably unsuccessful attempt to lure a serious independent candidate into the 2012 presidential race.
Please do sign up to get my new writings by email as they appear, or to follow me on Twitter (though I'll confess I'm an infrequent tweeter—don't expect breathless updates on what I'm feeling or eating at any given moment). If you have ideas for things I should be writing about or talking about on "Left, Right & Center," please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by!
