Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Shouldn't ensuring fair and accurate elections be an absolute MUST in a functioning democracy?
Read Paul Krugman's column from last Friday, discussing a book called "Steal This Vote" by a U.S. correspondent for the British newspaper The Independent. Among the topics in the book: verifying that Al Gore won in 2000 (2 news media consortiums found that a full manual recount would have given the election to Gore).
And the author is not just a political hack. He refutes the theory that differences between the Exit Polls and the actual result in 2000 point to a stolen election. But the author focuses on the dirty parts of modern elections, the parts that we really need to fix.
