Just When I’d Unlearned the Superfluous “U”s…

May 6th, 2009 · 9 Comments

Given my recent dramatic increase in free time, the  fine folks at The Economist have invited me back to their (newly Webby award winning!) U.S. politics blog Democracy in America, which you really ought to be reading daily already anyway. This time around, I’m apt to steer clear of the sort of terse horse-racey posts that, lets face it, aren’t my comparative advantage anyway, and instead try to write one or two of my trademark thubsucker mini-essay posts each day, albeit without the total disdain for the news cycle I sometimes flaunt here.   Pithy horse race posts are Dave Weigel’s comparative advantage, however, and he’s doing some posting there too, so it’s sort of a mini Hit and Run circa 2005 reunion. (Hit and Run circa 2005 having itself been a mini Suck reunion… but I digress.)  Anyway, yeah: Go read. Whether you’re labour, conservative, or centre, it’ll soon be your favourite blog.

    Congrats. Any chance you get them to publish the full text to their rss feed. I prefer to read your thumbsuckers in google reader . . .

    That didn’t take long. Good for you!

    I only wish that the Economist allowed personal by-lines. As it stands, I have to guess at which posts are yours.

    Maybe Julian should move to a city nobody else posts from. Or, just pretend he did.
