Quick links.

* Is McCain’s unvetted VP pick really associated with the Alaskan Independence Party (actual self-description: “No longer a fringe party”)? Really? Is this a joke?

* Johann Hari tries to game out the partisan political implications of Hurricane Gustav. I’m reserving judgment—you can’t underestimate how much Americans love kitsch, and I think McCain’s political opportunism in heading to the disaster zone could play really well among low-information voters. You and I know that a high-profile visit like this draws needed resources away from rescue efforts, but sad to say most swing voters just aren’t that savvy.

* So what if Kafka enjoyed porn?

* And, via Cynical-C, Steve Buscemi on The Big Lebowski.
