    The scene opened on a room with a red sofa, a potted plant and the kind of bland modern art you’d see on a therapist’s wall. In the room was Michelle Obama, or someone who looked exactly like her. Wearing a low-cut top with a black bra visible underneath, she writhed lustily for the camera and flashed her unmistakable smile. Then, the former first lady’s doppelgänger began to strip. The video, which appeared on the online forum Reddit, was what’s known as a “deepfake” — an ultrarealistic fake video made with artificial intelligence software. It was created using a program...

    <p>Now, most people just watch the color and pageantry rather than focusing on the announcers, but Couric’s reasoning for why the Netherlands is so dominant in speedskating stopped everyone. Couric mentioned Amsterdam’s canals and pointed out that skating is “an important mode of transportation” when the canals freeze over.</p>

    Remember back in early 2000 when the normally stiff and dour Al Gore began appearing in public wearing denim jeans and a big flashy smile on his face while darting his head in a fashion reminiscent of Ronald Reagan? What happened was that Al Gore was FAKING confidence. Oh yes, the appearance was there all right but it was disturbingly off-kilter. Much as he tried, you could sense that Al Gore was FAKING it mainly because he didn't REALLY feel confident. Well, much the same thing is going on with the DUmmies. Although it is still 4 months from...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has convened a group of Democratic lawmakers to develop a "faith agenda" for the party, a Capitol Hill newspaper reported Monday (Jan. 31). The "working group" of 15 to 25 members would help Democrats cast issues through a faith lens in a way that would help them speak to "faith-minded" voters, Roll Call reported. "Our problem is not our programs," said Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C. "It's been our expressions and interpretations of those programs. We are people of faith." Pelosi, a Catholic from San Francisco, has been soliciting ideas on the proposal for two years...

    <p>Like John Kerry, there's a photo of me somewhere out there with Jane Fonda. Also in the photo would be my wife and Tom Hayden, co-founder of Students for a Democratic Society and the intellectual guru of the New Left who was convicted (and later acquitted) at the Chicago Seven trial for inciting a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.</p>
