It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy
Mark Penn gets in trouble for a conflict-of-interest thing. I will resist the schadenfreude urge, although this underscores just how dishonest Mark Penn is, and someone who is so close to the Clintons and so demonstrably, er, nonprogressive on so many issues troubles many people.

- Problem: I have lots of opinions on politics and culture that I need to vent. If I do not do this I will wind up muttering to myself, and that's only like one or two steps away from being a hobo. Solution: I write two blogs. A political blog that has some evident sympathies (pro-Obama, mostly liberal though I dissent on some issues, like guns and trade) and a culture blog that does, well, cultural essays in a more long-form manner. My particular thing is taking overrated things (movies, mostly, but other things too) down a peg and putting underrated things up a peg. I'm sort of the court of last resort, and I tend to focus on more obscure cultural phenomena.
