Apparently the WaPo is doing another round of their Next Great Pundit stunt that worked so well for, what, a week last year, and then no one ever heard from the person who won? Something like that.
In honor of the occasion, Hamilton Nolan offers this: "How to Become the Next Great Pundit." It is harsh and kind of depressing, because for every example he gives, anyone familiar with what passes for political discourse among our most prominent pundits these days could easily come up with a hundred more.
However, if you just got here from Neptune and you want to know why Republicans are still considered a respectable political party and other reasons why our country is in such terrible shape, give it a look.
