Projection in the extreme

Cindy McCain says that Barack Obama has waged the dirtiest campaign in American History. My God, the projection here and in McCain's Albuquerque speech is staggering. I'm beginning to think that McCain and the people close to him are legitimately crazy and have lost touch with reality.

The Man, The Myth, The Bio

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.
