"Speaking as the recently anointed head of the DNC, I am totally stoked to see Arianna’s thoughtful, tolerant, nuanced approach to presenting civil debate between we [sic] folks on the left and the brain-dead, evil, baby-Eating Republicans," writes "not really by Howard Dean" -- AKA Steve H. [betcha] -- the Huffington's Toast Toastmaster who came in from the cold today:
I hope this site will usher in a new age of civility in political discourse. Furthermore, I hope lots of negroes are logging in from hotel kitchens.
Wicked good stuff. We can tell, 'cause it made us LOL. We're more inclined to smile with recognition or chuckle in a theatrical aside, but we're talking laughing out loud, here. Back in his jammies at Hog on Ice at the end of the day, Steve H. explains and ponders the imponderable:
For the first day, one lone blogger sitting on a giant caffeine suppository wrote almost everything, but thankfully, others have joined the battle, to great effect. In fact, said blogger could probably drop off the face of the earth with no adverse effect on the blog.
I think we're all wondering the same thing. How come we don't get this much attention when we write as ourselves, on our own blogs?
We disagree with the premise of your question, Steve. Try wrapping your desire to be noticed around something larger like Ronald Reagan's fabled "You can accomplish much if you don't care who gets the credit." No, we couldn't, either. The importance of being noticed is where it's at.
