M. Bouffant notes that while it still doesn’t merit front page attention on a site that at this writing features stories such as “The Clap-off Bra in Action” and “Ben Franklin: I Love Cougars,” Kausfiles, the Daily Tucker edition is now live!
Back issues of legendary, influential Spy magazine are now online, so you can read Joe Conason’s 1992 cover story on George H. W. Bush’s sex life and keep it in mind next time there’s a Dem sex scandal and Conason starts pontificating about “standards.” (Sample pontification, when the subject was J. Kerry’s sex life: “Is American politics suddenly returning to the bad old days, when Washington journalism became frenzied with sheet sniffing and keyhole peeping?”)
Point taken — Kaus is immune from such criticism, because especially when it comes to John Kerry he doesn’t have any standards. At any rate, you have to be impressed with Kaus’s ability to stay on top of the zeitgeist. What will the cutting-edge follow-up be: a detailed review of the seventh issue of George magazine? A review of the latest Spin Doctors CD? You may be able to resist the urge to find out!
