Guilty pleasures

Richard Lawrence Cohen writes about a secret vice: reading bloggers whose politics you find distasteful. (via Althouse) Of course, I exclusively read bloggers with whom I have some major political disagreement. (Such is the price we all pay for our idiosyncracies!) Frankly, my primary criterion for reading someone’s political opinions is that it is evident that they too read outside their spheres of ideological acceptability. Sadly, this constraint greatly narrows the potential reading list.
