The mystery of Sharron Angle's competitiveness

I think this answers it: of the $14 million she took in last quarter, she already spent $12 million of it. That's a lot of dough to spend, and that might be why she's where she is. Evidently she and Harry Reid are about even on cash for now (excluding the massive spending by outside groups, of course).

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.
