Political Animal

Kevin Drum has been hired as a professional blogger by Washington Monthly, writing their new “Political Animal” column/blog. He hasn’t revealed the full details, but he’ll apparently be doing that in lieu of CalPundit starting in the next day or two. Kevin has established himself as one of the premier bloggers and, while he’s already selling BlogAds for $100-$200 a pop, he might as well make a living at it.

Ironically, although the site will be called “Political Animal,” it will no longer feature Friday cat blogging.

    Huh- I guess being a ranting, irrational, conspiracy theorist has its rewards.

    Guess credibility was not in the job description.

    The dream of every blogger – to be paid for writing crazy crap that interests you.

    I wonder if there’s a market for selling the top blogs?
