Che Guevara and Debussy to a Disco Beat

This short video on Reason TV is worth 9 minutes of your time.
 
Now go rent “The Lost City“, directed by Andy Garcia.  You’ll need to help prepare your brain for the intellectual assault it will receive when you inevitably watch Steven Soderbergh’s sure-to-be-Oscared hagiography of Che.  Seriously, has Soderbergh ever made a film that wasn’t simply a vehicle for lefty political propaganda?

UPDATE:  Benicio Del Toro walks out during a newspaper interview on the film.

It’s that time again!

Time to play Name That Party! (thanks Instapundit)

It’s a favorite among our news media. Once or twice a month they like to get together any play it, just for fun. But it’s also educational! You see, by making people do the research for themselves, it helps make them even smarter. And there’s just no substitute for that sense of personal accomplishment.

That’s why so many people were well informed about which party controls congress and did such a great of job punishing the right party at the voting booth, given the 13% approval rating for Congress.  It’s democracy in action!

UPDATE:  Today is International Anti-Corruption Day.  Should be an easy date for me to remember.
