Matthew Taibbi - Insight from a Lemon-sucking Curmudgeon
I criticized this political writer after reading a bit of his vitriol in a friend's blog, and then went on to learn a little more about him, and I must give him credit for his insights, if not his attitude. He is brilliant, erratic, seemingly, somewhat troubled. But worth reading, as his forecast, or his pipe dream, will be coming true on Tuesday. From Rolling Stone, December 17, 2007.
He even triumphs over his own cynicism, so I think I'll hunt him up and see what he's up to.
