the gig: jonathan swanson, 34, is the co-founder and president of thumbtack — a services marketplace that is sort of like the yellow pages of the digital age. instead of trawling through hundreds of listings for plumbers, electricians, masseuses and tutors on paper, customers tell thumbtack what kind of professional they’d like to hire, and thumbtack presents them with options that fit their criteria. the 8-year-old company has on its platform more than 250,000 professionals. dinner table politics: swanson was interested in politics from a young age, aspiring while he was in high school to one day be an economic advisor to the president. “it was very specific and very dorky, but i saw politics as this big platform for making the world better, and economics appealed to me because it felt li

trump believes politics is stupid — and it shows


people have long hungered for an outsider to come in and upend politics as usual. well, now we know what it looks like to have a political rookie in charge.the worst political movie ever made was 1993’s “regular-guy-becomes-president” comedy, “dave.”the premise of the movie is that a presidential impersonator stands in for the real thing, who is a typical conniving politician. it’s a fish-out-of-water goes to washington, d.c. and of course what happens is the outsider slices through intractable capitol hill problems armed only with his rapier of common sense. for example, there’s the inane scene in which he painlessly lops $650 million from the federal budget using only a no. 2 pencil, a memo pad and the wisdom of the people accumulated from years of balancing his own books at the kitchen
