Monday, January 29th, 2007….eh?


The convergence of online political wonkery, video, and stupid website names has finally come together in, a site where political pundits debate on a video conference, record it, and offer it to the rest of the world. Since these guys are generally A-list columnists, or at least command an audience, I can’t say it’s the worst idea ever..but why video? Wouldn’t this sort of thing work a lot better as an audio file? Also, if I want to look at an opinionated middle-aged white guy with a goofy headset, I’ll look in the mirror while I do my podcast. No need to show me what these fellas look like in their dens and computer rooms.

Despite all that, bloggingheads just got a new cash infusion from investors. Damn, I’ve got to come up with a half-assed website idea and shop it around to some bored dentists.
