I’m surprised anyone is this gullible:
I love your blog because you’re one of the few bipartisan centrists who realize that both sides do it, where “it” is pretty much any bad thing. You’re like the post-punk David Broder. Have you always been so fair and balanced or is it something you learn over time as journamalist?

A. ALEXANDRA PETRI :
ALL RIGHT, WHO FILLED THIS CHAT WITH PLANTS WHO ARE BEING MUCH TOO KIND?
I’m going to start using “post-punk David Broder” on my promotional materials.
Thank you for saying this. I don’t know how often I succeed at this, but I really, really try. When I finally retrieved my mail after several months of allowing it to suppurate in the mail room, I was pleased to have notes from both sides complaining in strident terms that I was ruining everything. Some weeks the bar swings one way and some weeks it swings the other, but obviously no one party has a monopoly on idiocy. That would make things too easy.
