Kaus For Senate
Since we’re on the subject of the race for Senator Barbara Boxer’s seat, Slate's political blogger Mickey Kaus has officially thrown his hat in the ring. He took to his blog and HuffPo to explain his decision to run. He writes, “I have no special beef with the incumbent, Senator Boxer. She is a state-of-the-art Democrat. But to be "state-of-the-art" in our party is not such a good thing anymore. I am a lifelong Democrat. But on those issues, and others, what has become the party's dogma--what you have to say and think if you want to run for office as an anointed Democrat--no longer passes the test of common sense.” But the big question remains. Will the Venice based blogger be able to continue blogging for Slate as a candidate? I'm guessing not.
