More signs of the liberal revolt

Obama's approval/disapproval is at 51/41 according to Gallup. Not exactly stellar, but good, and on the uptick. And Democratic support for health care reform is holding steady at ~46% according to yesterday's poll, though admittedly the data was taken before the Lieberman fiasco. The "rebellion" is not real at this point, and the activist types mostly speak for themselves.

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.
