Who can argue with the fundamental points? It's more even-handed than I tend to be, of course; but since the facts are with smart liberals, the criticism of them is milder -- as I saw it -- than of smart conservatives. (Important point: there are, quite possibly, a few smart conservatives. As the party is currently constituted, there are no smart Republicans.)
The video also, it should be said, reminds me of one of the greatest political quotes of all time, in this case offered up by Paul Krugman: "Newt Gingrich is a stupid man's idea of what a smart person sounds like."
Blogging is barely mentioned among the various wastes of time and energy, but the implication is there, and is a big part of why I bail now and then.
