Today is a great day to sign up for TPM Prime. You get a faster version of the site, with dramatically fewer ads (none on mobile), exclusive longform articles, my podcast, full RSS feeds, access to The Hive and more. Perhaps most important, you help TPM do more original reporting. We are expanding our original reporting capacity next year and it's Prime that is making that possible. It's just 14 cents a day. Join us. Click right here. Thanks.
