As what they call a “small L” libertarian, I’ve never been much interested in Libertarian Party politics, but I actually find myself kind of riveted by David Weigel’s live-blogging of the Libertarian Party convention. There’s so much intrigue, with just the right amount of crazy thrown in. It’s horse-race interesting in a way the big party contests haven’t been since February, and very narrative: we’ve got villains and factions and underdogs, oh my. I’m rooting against Bob Barr, for the record; Mary Ruwart seems cool, Wayne Allen Root reminds me of Tom Cruise’s creepy motivational speaker character in Magnolia, and I think Mike Gravel may be my political soul mate.
