Republicans were against the Electoral College before they were for it

Robert Alexander writes that from Nixon to Ford to Trump himself, Republicans have at times favored a direct popular vote. Although Republicans are largely supportive of it today, electoral history suggests that views of the institution change depending on electoral outcomes -- if the outcome serves your interest, then all is well; when it doesn't, then we see major problems.

Penn State, Falcons learn: Scoring a touchdown can be a losing play

It's the most counterintuitive notion in football: Those rare instances where scoring a touchdown on offense is a bad idea that actually decreases the scoring team's chances of winning. But it played out twice in spectacular (depending on which side you were on) fashion this weekend, with the part-math, part-instinct problem rearing its head in a huge college football upset and an NFL game between two teams who both could have used a win. Here's a look at the situations at how both played out: *...

Carvana Conundrum

Pretty much doing anything during a global pandemic presents a unique set of problems no one could have possibly anticipated, especially when it comes to one of the largest purchases most of us will ever make-a car. Carvana seemed uniquely poised to take advantage of this sudden new world order that was thrust upon us. The question is, are they up to the challenge? Our story begins with my friend Kristin. Active in dog rescue and adoption services, Kristin needed a car with a lot of carg...

I've driven tons of Corvettes, and the refined nature of the new mid-engine car makes me miss the old days

Like everybody else, I waited a long time for the new mid-engine Corvette. Matthew DeBord/Insider I finally got a chance to drive the long-awaited eight-generation Corvette, now with the engine sitting in the middle of the car — not up front under the hood, its home since the early 1950s. The so-called C8 Vette is the most radical redesign in the car's long history. I expected to be impressed, and I was. But I also ended up struggling with the change. The C8 Vette is almost too good — I mi...

US Navy F/A-18s would 'destroy' China's J-15 carrier fighters in air-to-air combat today, but the future could be a different story

F/A-18E Super Hornets US Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Shannon Renfroe China's carrier-based J-15 fighter jets have some advantages over the US Navy's F/A-18s in air-to-air combat, but the limitations of China's existing carriers negate them. "If you're talking about the J-15 going up against the F/A-18 at sea, then the F/A-18 is going to destroy the J-15," a defense expert told Insider. But the new carrier that China is building could give the J-15 the opportunity to l...

CS Soapbox: Franchises That Need to End Following Fast & Furious

CS Soapbox: Franchises that need to end following Fast & Furious “Overstaying its welcome.” It’s a phrase I’ve often heard when discussing television but very rarely in the film world, despite a number of franchises running far past their expiration date, and with the recent confirmation that Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious mainline series would be coming to an end after two more films, I think it’s high time we look at some of the many movie series out there, be they our favorites or most...
