Current TV's Infomania is devoted to "making sense and nonsense of the media madness." Presumably, that madness includes willfully stupid, breathless celebrity "chat" shows like webseries Democracy WOW!
Journey into the heart of idiocy as Erin Gibson of Infomania submits to the questioning of an insane Indecision contributor…

Liberal powerhouse The Nation is the country's oldest continuously-published weekly magazine. In its storied 146-year history, it has published the works of FDR, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Emily Dickinson, John Steinbeck, George Orwell, T.S. Eliot, Naomi Klein, Allen Ginsberg, Christopher Hitchens, Calvin Trillen, and Robert Lowell.
But while its current editor and publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, has appeared on The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, she has never appeared on the insane celebrity chat show of a delusional Indecision contributor. Until now.
Behold: Democracy WOW!

We at Indecision don't usually fancy ourselves investigative journalists on the order of Woodward and Bernstein (or, you know, Creepytown Assange.) Today, however, we're feeling a little different. Our very own Deep Throat/Bradley Manning sent us some top-secret footage of Rep. Michele Bachmann rehearsing for her own response to the State of the Union.
And we're not saying the leaker was her long-suffering husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, but we're not NOT saying it, either…

Indecision Delegate: Sara Benincasa Will Always Cherish Cramming for the Midterms with You, America!
Hello, democracy dumplings! (This being America, you are of course a friend dumpling.) 'Tis I, your Indecision Delegate Sara Benincasa, bidding a noble farewell to this most glorious project (but not, of course, to your Indecision blog.)
Well, we've learned so much together over this delicious midterm cycle. I've imparted my peerless wisdom on the House of Representatives, the Senate, and, like, votering or whatever. I also traveled to D.C. to throw my weird brand of historical fiction at you, interrogated the populace about their political aspirations, and talked to nutty people in costumes at That Jon Daly Show's party on the Mall. Here is photographic evidence of said journey, BTW.
Anyway, thanks for coming along on this fantastic voyage. Like Sarah Palin, I'm now going to enter into important talks about my potential future as the Republican nominee in the 2012 Presidential election. Also like Sarah Palin, I'm totally lying because I've already decided to do it no matter what my family thinks.
Go forth and prosper, Americans!

Indecision Delegate: Sara Benincasa Will Entertain You with a Bevy of Photos from Her Trip to the Rally, America!
Hello, Concerned Citizens! 'Tis I, Sara Benincasa, your Indecision Delegate, here with a bevy of photos from our nation's capital (which is Washington, D.C. Just FYI.) I had such a delightful time at the Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear a few weeks back that it's taken me this long to recover sufficiently to show you the fun pics I took with my AT&T Blackberry Torch. Behold the power and the wonder of cameraphone adventures!
We began our journey shooting a delightful video at Ford's Theatre, where Abraham Lincoln was shot at close range by John Wilkes-Booth. I greatly enjoy Important Assassinations of Note, so I was in a rollicking good mood. Despite my charmingly accessible, nonthreatening exterior, I'm sort of a creepy goth on the inside.
