My last two posts have been about The Huffington Post, but I can't help myself. It's strangely fascinating, which means that Huffington has succeeded. It's like a train wreck, which is not what she was aiming for, but it's still drawing eyes to her pages, which *is* the ultimate goal.

What the hell is the deal with the posts from Greg Gutfield? Apparently, he's the editor of Maxim UK, which would seem to indicate that he's straight. (The "lad" magazines give a politely condescending nod to gay men, from the light exposure I've had to them. They're not openly contemptuous, but they certainly don't advocate that orientation) If he is straight, his posts are bordering on offensively stereotypical, and if he's gay, his blog posts make Jack from "Will & Grace" look like Walter Cronkite. They're particularly jarring since most of the other posters are serious, or at least not acting like they overdosed on lithium.
