New Blog Discovery

August J. Pollak is a self-trained cartoonist and blogger, who at 26 is exhibiting quite the wise perspective on politics. I discovered him today in the comments section of Matthew Yglesias's post today on Gwen Ifill's role as debate moderator for Biden/Palin. The link to his comment brought up a choice tidbit like this:
Imagine you are being interviewed and someone asks you "what newspapers do you read?" Now, it would be almost painfully obvious and easy to simply say you read the New York Times, or the Washington Post, or even, if you'd like to be edgy, you can say something like "well I'm not really big on print media, I get most of my information from blogs nowadays." But you know what you don't say? "All of them." Because that's fucking stupid.
The entire post called "A B.A. in B.S." is actually pretty good too.
