Bring it on

Obama takes my advice and challenges McCain to say the Ayres stuff to his face. Good. I think this taunt could be damaging if it catches on. If Obama makes McCain look like a coward who lets other people make sleazy attacks for him and who won't stand by them when on national TV, then this is not a good thing for America's Hero®.

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.
