Two squeaky wheels are getting all the grease.

Excellent post at an excellent site. Summary: increased polarization between diametrically opposed points will marginalize all in the middle.  Even if we are 90-95% of the population.  I believe gerrymandering of the mindscape inevitably follows gerrymandering of the landscape: There are two national … Continue reading

Reporting is not quite dead yet, it’s just mutating.

Most of you are probably aware there’s a tight Republican primary fight in Alaska, between a Palin-backed Tea Partier and a RINO.  You’re probably aware because theothermccain is currently the source for most of my hits. Anyway, ‘Bama boy Stacy is … Continue reading
