I laughed at this incredulous reaction from Steve Benen: "Wait a second. Ralph Reed believes he can show his face in public again? He thinks he has the credibility to once again be a political player?"
More and more, the public face of the GOP is beginning to consist solely of philanderers, talk radio goons, and outright crooks. It's going to be a long time before they come back.

- 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.
