In a deposition that offers an eerie window on modern American politics, Republican political consultant Edward J. Rollins has sworn that "psychological warfare" with another political consultant led him to "fabricate" a story of paying to suppress black voter turnout in the New Jersey governor's race. But he admitted that he did discuss such an effort in general terms with a campaign aide, although he has no idea if it was carried out.

If misery really does love company, then Californians upset about high auto insurance rates (and who doesn't fit in that category?) might consider finding a friend in New Jersey. For years, New Jersey has had the dubious distinction of having the highest premiums in the country--on average, 20% higher than rates in California, where officials hope a rating plan announced earlier this month may drop costs for many drivers.

One Saturday last spring, the same day that marked the kickoff of West Hollywood's annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Celebration, a small group of conservative Republican activists got together for an alfresco fund-raising brunch in a Hollywood Hills home. The setting seemed like heaven--ripe oranges and lemons on curving branches, mockingbirds burbling arias beneath an azure sky--and the dozen or so guests seemed perfectly cast for their roles as Grand Old Party stalwarts.
