    The Underwoods as Liberal in "House of Cards"

    They scrap. They fight. They backstab. They even kill. They also are supposedly liberal, proving woefully inept at actually carrying across consistent legislation but crafty and deadly in the underworkings of the American political sphere. How are the Underwoods exactly liberal?

    • I definitely think this is an interesting topic, as I have wondered about this myself watching the show. Frank is a "Liberal" from South Carolina no less. I think it might be interesting to examine the various policies he pushes, and to what end: power or belief? – MichelleAjodah 4 years ago

    • That's opening a can of worms for sure. Another interesting topic ,and one that this topic will eventually lead to, could be the similarities between American policy in the 21st century and Underwood's policies in House of Cards. You might have to embrace the very real conclusion that the terms 'liberal' and 'conservative' might just be name tags politicians stick on before just doing whatever they want. – EarlGreyTRex 4 years ago

    • They are the Clintons: whatever it takes to win, do it. Hillary supports private prisons - no conflict of interest affecting justice there - and other conservative mistakes. Also, anyone else notice how there's no intimacy between the two, but after they've screwed the world, they share a cigarette? Seems more fitting of a captain of industry than a liberal representative. – Tigey 4 years ago

    • Frank and Claire seem to be on the more progressive side of political topics like foreign and domestic policy, they are also part of the democratic party. – luminousgloom 4 years ago

    My roommate of two years in college constantly played this game. I’ve heard all of the lingo and listened to him for hours trying to convince my friends and I to play. I never have and probably never will, but I still respect how large and important it has become.

    League of Legends' Appeal: The Growing Community

    I have read both Infinite Jest and The Pale King. Struggles at times, but there are passages that are better than anything I’ve read or think I’ll ever read. Both have powerful, deeply intense sections that clearly show what Foster Wallace thought and went through on a daily basis.

    The End of The Tour: The Loneliness of the Long-Form Writer

    I don’t think anything can ever match “The Constant.” It took a supporting character and his story, incorporated all of the best things about “Lost,” and had an absolute bomb of an ending. I rewatch that final phone call ever now and then.
