We've been pretty serious on some important stuff lately ... Important stuff because, while we like to poke fun at pundits, pols and our fellow flacks, we're at least honest about it. Some bloggers aren't. So we call 'em on it. But it's time to get back to what we do best. Lame, lockerroom, shameless, humor and gossip.
It's like the old saying goes: "when you're on a roll, it's time to pass the butter." Or, was it "when you pass the rolls, don't forget the butter" ... I can never remember. But that's irrelevant.
We are really happy to have Mike Dovilla, late of Baghdad-a-go-go, Iraq, jump on board as another conspirator in our merry band of ethernet warriors. Mike worked on Capitol Hill in the Senate for Ohio Senator George Voinovich and in the Administration at OPM, before making the break to the private sector to make some real money, and make a run for Congress in Ohio.
Mike is a Naval Intelligence Officer who just returned from a long year in Iraq with CJTF-Troy doing all kinds of "James Bond" stuff to find and neutralize the bad guys. So we all want to take a minute and thank him for his service and sacrifice. Welcome Home, man!
So, as you can see from his resume, this guy is a much more serious dude than the rest of us dumpster divers (with the possible exception of Perry and Clinton, and of course, Gonzo who is just too freakin' freaky for words ...) but I'm sure he can weigh anchor and find some of the good dish on the UFO Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, over there in Cleveland. (Trust me, this is gonna be rich! I mean, c'mon, the guy's a Navy spook - what chance do the Kucinich flacks have?) Besides, there's all kinds of goofy stuff going on in Cleveland. Stay tuned!
We've sent out some other invitations too ... so keep tuned in as we find out who else is brave enough to turn pro! We're hoping for true national coverage - Yes, we'll be spanning the globe (or at least the internet) to bring you the thrill of paucity and the agony of the feet.
BTW, for those of you keeping score at home ... that's One Army, One Marine, and One Navy. Gonzo was in the JROTC or something ... what was that, like Civil Air Patrol or something? So, I guess we even have an Air force guy, sorta?
