How it is

McCain just challenged Obama to a game of chicken and he blinked. Obama showed his greater resolve and steeliness and cannily stood up against him. If anyone is still supporting McCain at this point--might I ask why? If he tanks the debate tonight the election is over. I'm beginning to think a landslide is imminent.

Update: Sam Boyd says it best: "If he caves this easily, how can we trust him to stand up to the terrorists?"

The Man, The Myth, The Bio

East Bay, California, United States
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.
