Happy Blogiversary.Twelve years ago today, this blog kicked into gear … as a campaign blog.
One rotation of Jupiter around the sun later, here we are.
In that time, some amazing stuff has happened: the Term Limits gang’s rout, the defense of Private Beauchamp from Little Billy Kristol of The Weakly Standardud and his young thug Michael Goldfarb, who now has his own cyber-smear sheet, the Washington Free Bacon; the attack by Joe Farah of World Nut Daily, and the subsequent attacks by Sean Hannity, Brent Bozo …. er, Bozell, and Ted Nugent (who claims to live in fear of me, the wussy) on Faux Nooz; the tax return that destroyed Kevin Mannix’s congressional campaign, the outing of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, etc. etc.
It’s been a pretty amazing run. Right now I’m dialed back as I work on paying writing stuff, but the blog is by no means dead and buried.
SHERMAN! Crank up the wayback:
Welcome to my blog. We’ll be looking at the campaign for HD8 from the inside … of course, having been a journalist for nearly 30 years, and having done a fair bit of muckraking, it ain’t gonna be pretty. Like making sausage, it shouldn’t be watched if you want to keep your appetite, but it was the double dealing and back room deals that forced me — against my will, dammit! — to run in the first place.
May God have mercy on their souls (solds?) ’cause I sure won’t.

From little acorns …
And Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer is dead (a suicide?) at 71. Fuck. Fuck. FUCK.
UPDATE: Santa Monica Police confirmed to Billboard that Keith Emerson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head and his death has been ruled a suicide.
