Politics as pop culture. (via ArtsJournal)
  • Such artful use of the word "lefty". Does it hurt people so much to use words that don't undermine their point or expose their agenda?
  • I don't think that just an appearance of "lefty" undermines or exposes anything. There are many other things in the article you can shoot the author for that are more undermining. Like the overexposition of liberal examples or giving petty accusations like "liberals do it to".
  • True. I guess the term "lefty" irks me, similar to how a non-PC racial tag irks me.
  • As someone who got a Master's degree in Popular Culture, the use of the term "pop culture" irks me.
  • Interesting read, Zemat. Pop Culture: Vote with your dollars; everyone wins!
