It seems like every time I try to make a renewed effort to post substantive material here on a regular basis my schedule goes boink and I get buried in work. Seeing as this is all paying work, I'm not complaining. Really. It beats the hell out of the alternative. In fact, I'd like the fates to note that I am now once again planning on posting here more often. Not just posting, but posting exhaustively researched, intricately structured pieces of such dense verbosity that Glenn Greenwald will send me an e-mail saying simply, "Dood, it's called an editor." Yep. That's my plan.
Now, while I wait for the phone to ring and end up with another dozen projects to work on, a quick thought: am I the only one who finds it kind of hilarious that Rudy Giuliani spent years cultivating his "America's Mayor" image and licking all the GOP boots he thought were appropriate only to find himself sidelined by the likes of Sarah Palin?
Ah, schadenfreude - hope may disappoint, joy is fleeting, but schadenfreude is eternal.
