Before listing me in the Perez haters column, don't. Although it's lowest common denominator, his "body of work" has been consistent over the years. He's exhibited sheer tenacity in becoming a media voice, and his ability to rise above constant derision is of note. So, yes, I sort of like Perez. Even if he is going Rove.
(Full disclosure department: One of my house-mates this coming summer was Perez' college roommate, but that really has no influence on this at all.)
