Palin the Inquisitor

She asked to ban books three different times? The most charitable explanation is that this is a Rove-style play at divisiveness. And it's not charitable.

Now, I know that Palin styles herself as a penny-pincher. Such a notion is debatable. But I'm not sure that this is the way to go about saving money?

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.
