1. Running the country as a for profit business
2.Why there is no party for most of us
3. Why the Republicans are so afraid of Obama, their stawman arguments, and especially the inscrutable Clint Eastwood performance. [See also: A comment that your intrepid blogger made on this NPR story. We'll save you the tedium of wading through the pages of comments and reprint it here: "The Clint Eastwood speech was symbolic of the entire RNC: a bunch of old white men making up "facts" about a guy that doesn't exist. The irony is assuredly lost on them, but I thought it was perfect." -ed.]
We make the accusation of intellectual thievery mostly in jest. It's not like our lazy skepticism is all that novel. We mostly suspect that it's all just part of the current zeitgeist among the critical thinking set. So, hats off to you Daily Show writers for bringing us 21 minutes of joy four nights a week. You may be aware of our ambivalence toward the President, so we can't wait for Jon Stewart, and Co. to take aim at the Dems next week.
Posting will be light this week, so enjoy the DNC coverage. We'll be back later in the week with a wrap up.
