I feel pretty confident that my abrupt, often shrill political posts catch some of you off guard. Not that any of you think I shouldn't post them (maybe you do), but that probably you don't know what to do with them. Yeah?
I mean, it's not like I'm especially even about them. I usually only post political things when I'm really upset or pissed off.
So in discussing this last night with MeJane and Ish and ElG (who, I should add, has a degree in foreign policy and is a great writer and if he had it to do over again, would/could/should have been an Atrios or Kos or Josh or Wolcott or at least a TBogg. Or even Bart), we decided we'd just start a political blog together.
I'll let you know when the details are worked out.
And I will now return you to our regularly scheduled blogging.
