"It's entertainment versus politics."

Oh. Since we blue-staters got licked in the political arena, the NYTimes appears to be jonesing for a fight on the entertainment side, wagging a limp finger in the general direction of "value voters" who seemingly enjoy sex on TV. I can just imagine their shame. The undercurrent of moral supriority --- it reads as just a cut above "nyah, nyah" --- here and in Sunday's cultural map [linked to on the page above] that outs Playboy readers in Iowa and Wyoming reminds me all too well of my days as a grudge-bearing high school yearbook editor. "Cheerleaders talk about themselves," indeed.

Anyway, entertainment won, McPherson. Relax already.
