I rather like Ross Douthat's narrative here, and the key update in the piece makes this all the more damning for the Republicans. Not only have they just lost themselves this election, but they've written themselves a ticket to the political wilderness for the conceivable future. I've never been more certain of anything in my life.

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.
