Well, this is exciting. I’ve just signed on to write a weekly column for the Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill. And here’s the inaugural column.
The subject of this column is the Republican party’s recent inability to decide whether the North or the South should have won the Civil War, and other fun matters.
“The problem,” I write toward the end of the piece, “is that too many Republican officeholders still believe itâs important to keep the GOP a congenial home for all manner of unreconstructed yahoos and even downright racists.”
The column will be running every Wednesday. And there’s even a clean-shaven photo of the proprietor of this website!
