I don't usually just link to things here, without any real commentary, but I've been trying to put together a little rant about how frustrated I am with a lot of my fellow liberals right now. I've been trying to write something about the way in which many liberals (many that I speak to) have been successfully distracted from the real issues and work to be done in this election season by the Sarah Palin issue - her pregnant daughter, her sarcasm, her appeal (or lack of it) to women, the initial bump in the polls she seems to have given the Republicans, and so on (rather than staying focused on the issues). But John Scalzi did a good enough job, and I don't see any point in reinventing the wheel.
