    Good luck, Malcom.  I don’t know how I stumbled across your site, but have really enjoyed your wit and wisdom.  I love your irreverent sense of humor,  and your ability to poke holes in pompous politicians egos, etc. etc.  Stay in touch  Best to you.  Hope this includes a generous raise, company car, country club membership, a body guard and a platinum parachute! You should also be well advised to heed Art Buchwald’s advice: “If you’re gonna tell people the truth, you better make ’em laff.  Otherwise, they may kill you!”

    At the risk of sounding pushy, once again I encourage you to check on Robert Brault.  If you read a couple or three of his blogs, you’ll get hooked.  I’ve also told him he would enjoy you. Trust me on this one.  You and he will probably become fast friends.  

  • Another reason to ignore the LA Times, Malcolm was the only one I bothered reading there.

  • Not only is Malcom’s LA Times blog one of the best political blogs around, it let me tweak my liberal friends on a regular basis (“Hey, look what the LA Times says about this!”). Citing IBD would have quite the same impact. Sigh. 🙂
