Whew

Well, I'm finally done for the time being filling in for Ed Kilgore. I kept meaning to put something up here but full-time blogging really wrings out my brain and I couldn't muster the energy. So, for now, here is a selection of the best posts I did over the last week or so:

1. Science Denial Is a Large and Growing Problem. This one blew up a little on Twitter.

2. Concern Trolling in the Times. Bill Keller recommended this one. Turns out, he is a remarkably terrible columnist.

3. Mitt Romney and Firefighters. The future holds more wildfire, bet on it.

4. Remember When Breaking the Law Used to Mean Something? Nixon was a criminal, sure, but Bush was  every bit as lawless. Plus, nobody cares, which is way worse.

5. The Liberal Path to Power. Summing up a lot of my recent thinking.

6. Jon Stewart and False Equivalence. Constant vigilance.

7. Poor Understanding of Monetary Policy Is Killing the Democrats. We need a crash course, children's book, something.

8. Why I Am Wary of Government. The last decade has been great for cynicism.

9. Age Discrimination on the Right. Jonah Goldberg is a fucking idiot.

Something like regularly scheduled programming should resume soon.

  1. Hey Ryan, welcome back. Really enjoyed your writing on the Political Animal. Did you notice that the name of the writer you had filled in for is also the first name of a very famous character created by Kurt Vonnegut? Kilgore Trout. Somehow it struck me as so appropriate. B
