Mickey Kaus has finally become unreadable.
I'm not saying that I can't read him because I disagree with him. And it's not because his "iconoclast schtick" has gotten old. That's old news; it was stale before Arnold came along. What I'm saying is: Kausfiles is a mess.
Random and indiscriminate bolding, irrelevant asides, incomplete thoughts, "wink wink...you know what I mean" comments, and too many exclamation points. If you have to use that many exclamation points to indicate excitement!!! or important!!! then it's probably lacking in both.
I'm sure someone will call it the "shape of New Media". I call it Adult ADD.
