The Jake Files


Some would say the Amazing Jake is an incredibly snarky, but inciteful, observer of all things political and pop culture-related. Others say his schadenfreude regarding Old Europe’s self-immolation and his disdain for all things French will be his undoing. His kids just call him Daddy.

The Amazing Jake lives in Chandler, Arizona, with the Amazing Mrs. Jake, two active girls in kindergarten and preschool, and the preschooler’s imaginary friend, Lawrence.
