Mitt Romney isn't going to run for Massachussetts Senator

Duh. Seriously, why does the media waste its time talking about things like this? Earlier it was whether Mitt would become the administration's auto czar, or that Dubya should become the Israeli special envoy or something. Sometimes I wish that reporters would spend their time reporting about, I don't know, health care or education reform (which is also happening) or Afghanistan or really anything that will actually make a difference to peoples' lives, instead of endless, pointless hypotheticals.

Haha, silly me. I guess I should be thankful they aren't covering the LaRouchies and teabaggers, at least.

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.
