Music

Sometimes country music these days comes from Bill Clinton fans who duet with hip-hop stars and talk about running for office (where they might do a lot of good), or from subversive male oddballs who devote DVD time to flirting with each other and railing against corporate entertainment mergers. And on CMT lately, sometimes it revolves around specials called 20 Sexiest Men conspicuously featuring plenty of gay male commentary, or specials set in Plains, Georgia, conspicuously featuring Jimmy Carter. Also, sometimes you can dance to it. Possibly even while reading your copy of Thomas Frank's excellent What's the Matter With Kansas?.
