If you don't follow the Scarfolk blog, you should. Just from a design standpoint, the guy's work is stellar. I also highly recommend the book.

Hear me out here, folks. A total eclipse creates what looks like a giant O as the sun is all but obscured by the moon. The sky also goes dark. And animals get confused, showing that the natural way of things is screwed up. God is warning us that the dark O—Obama—is planning on leading a revolt against nature and goodness! Buy guns.

Note to Democrats: Those kinds of numbers, reflecting the policies of Clinton and Obama, not just Republican administrations, are not good. It's why you don't inspire turnout.

On my ride this afternoon, I started listening to Louis Menand's The Metaphysical Club, about the birth of pragmatism in the late 19th c. I'd listened to it once long ago and read it for my US history field six years ago, but starting Brad Snyder's The House of Truth, about the intellectual shift from progressivism to liberalism in the early 20th c, I was reminded of this one and decided to revisit. Anyway, I was struck by this comment by the fervent abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison on the slavery question: “the experience of two centuries [has] shown, … gradualism in theory, is perpetuity in practice.” No, Hillary and Barack, don't nod so vigorously like that, you're missing the point.
