The state of compassionate conservatism today
Via Benen: "The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States." That would be a quote from a guest on Glenn Beck's show. Just imagine if a liberal had said something similar during the Bush years with respect to Iraq. Where, oh where, is the vaunted liberal media on this?

- 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.
