The lefty blog directory has been disappointing so far.

Honestly, i'm indifferent to Ahnuhld's bid for California governor. I thought Jesse Ventura running for (and winning) governor of Minnesota was mad cool. He predated my memory of WWF pro wrestling, but i thought an ex-Marine in a feather boa was mad cool. Plus anything relating to "old-school" WWF tends to make my heart go pit-a-pat.

Andrew Sullivan says, "Yay! A pro-gay, pro-choice, hard-ass Republican!" and Eugene Volokh links to a bit from Demolition Man i had forgotten. I love that movie and wanna rewatch it when i get home.

While i'm admitting to liking things i should perhaps be ashamed of, i adored Models Inc. -- the prime-time soap opera which ran for one summer when i was 11.

I refuse to comment on anyone running for President until i've done serious research, which isn't going to happen until i return to the States and likely not until i'm settled in my Lamont room at Smith.

Eugene Volokh has interesting thoughts on party-line voting (and a follow-up addendum here).
