September 7, 2007

I had a much longer post in which I gently let down my two or three casual readers (counting myself) and told them that due to the demands of college and my internship at TPM I wasn’t going to be posting on this blog again until mid-December. That post, of course, got messed up by Blogger. Don’t you hate that?

Anywhere, here it is in fewer words. This blog exists pretty much entirely for selfish reasons – it’s an outlet for my strong interest in politics and political commentary. TPM, at least for this semester, is going to be my outlet instead. Besides, I’m really really busy. Something had to go.

I’ll see you all when winter break begins.

Surprise!

I’m back (for now), but classes start tomorrow and my internship the day after that, so we’ll see how long this lasts. I just had to pop in to mention this awesome surprise visit to Iraq from our president. I think the troops were hoping for Dave Chappelle, but Bush is cool too, I guess.

Anyway it’s nice to see the president making these visits surprises – they boost morale and garner minimal fanfare except for a write-up by the AP and every major newspaper. Also, because they demonstrate how successful the escalation has begin because Iraq is clearly far too dangerous for the president to announce that he’s going there and give the insurgency time to prepare a welcome party.

Surprise!
