Perhaps I spoke too soon?

Carly Fiorina is having some issues. If she has to quit, I wonder how the Senate race here will shake out. The California GOP is extremely conservative, and if it becomes the already-deflating moderatish Tom Campbell vs. real conservative Chuck DeVore, I think DeVore will experience a big surge. Could be another Crist/Rubio type of thing.

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.
