I’ll be a little more scarce, around here, for the next several months…
As I already posted at that Orange Place:
Former Daily Kos Contributing Editor Steve Soto is taking a sabbatical from helming The Left Coaster, and I’ll be filling in as temporary principal writer. I should be posting at least twice a day, Monday through Friday, for the next several months. The rest of the site’s superb writers will always be there, and when Steve returns, I will remain as a Contributing Writer.
Needless to say, this is a somewhat daunting and very flattering position to have been offered. Because of that, it will now be my top blogging priority. I will crosspost at DocuDharma, in addition to writing one exclusive, per week, there, and I will also crosspost some to Daily Kos; but those of you who enjoy my writing will now find most of it at The Left Coaster. Those of you who are tired of my haranguing about candidate-bashing diaries will also want to visit The Left Coaster, just to keep site traffic up, and keep me distracted from distracting you. And those of you who neither know nor care who the hell I am can continue safely neither knowing nor caring, but you’ll also want to visit The Left Coaster, because it’s where the cool people get informed!
I’ll still be here, sometimes diarying, sometimes commenting, and generally trying to help the cause. The Democratic Party remains a very imperfect vehicle, but within the political system, I do believe it is the best vehicle for effecting positive change. I remain an ideological idealist, but a pragmatist. I remain a partisan. I continue to hope that, after the primary wars are finally over, we will come together and rid ourselves, once and for all, of this dangerously hyper-extremist iteration of the Republican Party. At the same time, I am determined to help reestablish the Democratic Party as the people’s party. Daily Kos is a big part of that movement, and I hope The Left Coaster will also continue to do its part! Hope to see many of you there!
I’ll be here when I can. Where else in the tubes can I find such civility?
