It's not just that it's been about two and a half years, but I find this hilarious: "After 4 years of Democrats running this country's finances, Americans are fed up with the lack of accountability and the worsening economic indicators."

So, vote Republican? I think Americans just want more jobs. The party of the financial crisis and the spending freeze can't quite deliver them, I suspect.

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.
