That about sums up my opinion


I’ve never bothered to comment on the embarrassment that is WaPo’s little video foray, Mouthpiece Theater, because… well, I didn’t want to accidentally cause someone to see it and suffer the way I had. They got more attention than they deserve last week, however, when Milbank (half of the un-comedy duo from the vids) decided to obliquely call Hillary Clinton a bitch just for yuks. So if you really want to see their shtick it wouldn’t be hard to google up now.

However I found this gem today which I think pretty accurately conveys the quality and thoughtfulness of MT and has the added advantage of actually being amusing. I see a lot of stuff online that unfairly takes swipes at traditional media and ignores their contributions but this is pretty spot-on in mocking their attempts at … relevance? I don’t even know what they’re aiming for in making MT.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
