The Daily Link
As this process of linking up a new blogger each day progresses, I'm starting to see the three dimensional nature of the blogosphere up-close. Today's link comes via eRobin of Fact-esque, who thought she learned about it via the Daily Link. She had not. Perhaps you will.
Tag: None, which probably reflects the savvy of a more recent blogger who wants to avoid being stuck with a lame tag.
The blogger is Sean, whose posts tends toward the thoughtful--with a dash of gallows humor. I can find no other information about him, so you'll have to let his prose do the talking. (There is a reference to Ohio in one post, so maybe he's a Buckeye.) One of my (secret) criteria about linking up bloggers has been regularity of posting. Sean does that and more. Given that he tends to do a lot of original writing (as opposed to Atrios-like linking), it's a pretty impressive output.
Trenchant quote: (On the Departure of Margaret Tutwiler, Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs) "Isn't it interesting that Tutwiler is leaving her government job for a cushy gig in the private sector during the biggest foreign policy public relations nightmare ever? Who is going to 'ensure that public diplomacy is practiced in harmony with public affairs and traditional diplomacy to advance U.S. interests and security and to provide the moral basis for U.S. leadership in the world' now? Well, I wouldn't know how to spin this story either. And I hope that Tutwiler didn't come up with the whole 'this isn't any worse then a fraternity hazing stunt' talking point. Because if she did, I wouldn’t hire her to write the copy for porn ads in the back of adult magazines.
