An Open Letter to my Colleague, Doug Mataconis
I was a big supporter of James’ suggestion to add you to OTB. I’ve enjoyed your work here enormously.
That said, I have to express some concern about the sheer number of posts you’ve written about a certain reality TV star from the Great White North. I am afraid that if you’re not careful, something like this might happen to you, only with Sarah Palin in the John Malkovich role.
Consider this an intervention.
Might I suggest mixing it up a little? If you want to stick with the inter-party warfare, Michelle Bachmann is always there, ready and waiting. Or there’s always Peter King. Or Steve King. Or Mike Lee. Or I don’t know about you, but I still get 2-3 emails a day from the Christine O’Donnell campaign.
Or you could always cross the aisle. Joe Biden’s bound to have put his foot in his mouth on any given day. And of course there’s always Sheila Jackson Lee. And I’m sure Alan Grayson will try to get back into the limelight.
The bottom line: there’s plenty of comedy fodder all around!
