Dean Baker: business reporting is not not leftish enough.
"Culture war" is the right's version of the left's "class war."
Politics in America is a fashion statement. Most people did not
choose their political stance based on anything so dull as, say,
reading and research. If that were the case, we'd see a lot more

"Crunchy cons" are supposed to rock our world because they
combine identifiers from two opposing teams(!!)
In a way, I guess I am actually a little impressed that this guy
is able to express his desire to eat tasty vegetables, despite
it being unfashionable in the circles he runs in. It's sad that
this is what passes for independent thought, though.

Because he has something to say about Mexico, obviously,
and also because Jack Valenti and the MPAA have made it
impossible for a movie like this to be produced in America.
It is a perfect illustration of the need for a workable adult
rating: too mature, thoughtful and frank for the R, but
not in any sense pornographic.
Why do serious film people not rise up in rage and tear
down the rating system that infantilizes their work?
