Things going on while John McCain tries desperately to get people interested in Bill Ayres

  • The stock market has taken another in a long series of nosedives.

  • The Alaska Supreme Court has dismissed an attempt to delay the publication of the investigation into Sarah Palin's Troopergate scandal.

  • And, oh yeah, people are totally freaking out about the economy.

And, of course, McCain's still talking about Ayres to anyone who will listen. Even though he said he wasn't going to. The yo-yos over at The Corner no doubt approve. Meanwhile country is losing about a trillion dollars of wealth a day.

I have no real quip here. Just an observation that is damning enough on its own.

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.
