Last week, John McCain suffered an unfortunate, H. W. Bush style gaffe about the fundamentals of the economy, got caught flat-footed with the economic crisis, saw his poll numbers and favorability ratings erode, lashed out at Obama and gave a sorta apology for how terrible his campaign has been. So, naturally, he won the week. And this is the same MSM that determines which politicians are "in touch" and which are not?

The Man, The Myth, The Bio

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.
