I'm going to be traveling today, so I'll be in and out of Panda Party. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a Panda Party! The great thing about Panda Party is that it's grown into its own sub-community of Pandagon, which is exactly what I hoped for. A video to kick it off:

Amanda Marcotte is a freelance journalist born and bred in Texas, but now living in the writer reserve of Brooklyn. She focuses on feminism, national politics, and pop culture, with the order shifting depending on her mood and the state of the nation.
Pandagon is the go-to zone for eye-rolling at conservative nonsense, feminist rants, election-watching, and obsessing over low-rated but critically acclaimed television. Jesse Taylor and Amanda Marcotte may take politics very seriously, but egos not so much.
