I'll have some more thoughts on this later, but just wanted to get this posted for y'all to read:
(For those of you reading on a mobile device:
Yes, that's yours truly quoted in the article. A friend of mine in NYC, the delightful Miss Anna Curran, referred the writer to me for a "conservative perspective" on our local lunatic of a Congressional representative, Alan Grayson.
I think it's funny that one of my favorite little slang phrases made it in the article, but she left out some of my juicier sound bites. The article seems fair to me, maybe slanted a bit to the left like Salon tends to be, but I don't see anything glaringly inaccurate or outrageous. (Sigh...if only the Slantinel could hire Nancy Scola!)
I also can't for the life of me figure out why the article's discussion of the Republicans in District 8 only included Webster, Sullivan and Fanelli. What happened to Long, O'Donoghue, and Kelly? Clearly no one at Salon bothered to see who actually makes news coverage here locally.
Anyway, I'll have some more thoughts later on the article and the always-adventurous endeavor of talking to the press later. What did you think of the article? Let me know.
