Modus Ponens

John McCain said he wouldn't leave Washington until the financial crisis was solved.
John McCain is leaving Washington for the debate.
.: The financial crisis is solved! That was easy!

Seriously, though, this is weak tea from McCain bootlicker Lindsey Graham:

"What's more important than anything that when we go to Mississippi tonight, both candidates can say that the Congress is working ..."

Umm, yeah, Linds. It was working, though, and it had a deal on the table before your dumbass pal lit it on fire in pursuit of glory. In a related story, WaMu was seized by the government. Oh, yeah, and Rasmussen (Rasmussen!) has McCain down five.

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.
