American Mind Takes the Short Bus to Iowa

Sean Hackbarth has announced that his blog has been bought ought by the folks who own to inject MySpace with some “gravitas” and that he would be moving to Des Moines, Iowa to cover the primaries. No word on whether his site will feature a garish color scheme, poorly coded HTML, and annoying music blaring at readers.

I expect further details to be revealed tomorrow, April 2nd.

  1. The annoying music is a given. MySpace told me they trademarked it. Despite my lawyers’ best efforts I have to pick a song out and get it up ASAP. At least I don’t have to pick anything by Fall Out Boy.

  2. And another thing: my bus is “The Short Talk Express.” Even webloggers should be accurate.
