Fournier is up to his old tricks

Look, I realize that the Mass. election loss was bad news for Dems, but the pro-Republican brio with which this AP article is written would almost make Sean Hannity blush. I guess a Republican winning in Massachusetts means that every single Republican frame must be right? One would hardly realize that Obama is extremely popular in the state.

Liberal media, dammit!

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.
