I can't find a place that gives a good explanation of glBlandFunc. What would be the best blend function to use in a 2D game with alpha values of 0 and 255, and nothing in between?

I would just use:
glBlendFunc( GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA );

It will do what you want and let you add other values later on.

255 is completely visible and 0 is completely invisible - what's the point of using blending in the first place?

If you're going to use it for a "colorkey" effect then use:
glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);
