Blog Post Of The Week

just posted
Though Kathryn has linked to some of its stories, no one's noted the launch yesterday of Politico, the new Capitol Hill newspaper run by a couple of former Washington Post reporters, going up against Roll Call and The Hill. My favorite stories so far: "Hispanic Lobbyists Unite to Increase Clout" (Immigration's just like a century ago, when the Italian Lobbyists Assn. was formed--right?), another (not online) about the delegates from Samoa and other territories wanting a vote in the House (Here's an idea--give them independence and they can vote til they're blue in the face), and finally, "Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed."
