    Or Charles Johnson, the LGF guy

    Glenn Reynolds is a putz. Charles Johnson is a mouth-breathing psychopath.

    Of course, just because someone is a psychopath hasn't stopped the media before, eg, Michael Savage Wiener on MSNBC.

      of an institution like Newsweek.  Markos, by publishing all those polls and being up on election developments, may satisfy their definition of mouth-breathing psychopath.

      Don't be so far above politics that you can't help clear the snakes down on the ground. (P.S.: my opinions are mine, not my employer's.)

        sensitive to being embarrassed.  I can't imagine they'll take someone so off the wall that they'll get raked over the coals for any statement that gets made.  They've got to be sensitive to the rush limbaugh at espn effect. wingnutz might say anything and newsweek is gonna bear the brunt of anything they might say.

        Maybe erik erickson at red state.

          Maybe erik erickson at red state.

          Or perhaps they'll choose Powerline's Johnny Hindrocket. The one who said:

          "It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can't get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile." - John H. Hinderaker

            (He's a man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, you know.)  Or maybe Ed Morrisey from Captain's Quarters.

            The question is, who can they choose who won't embarrass them, but who couldn't make it into the papers anyway?  That's a pretty small set.

              Gotta be someone like morrissey or reynolds.  Someone with the howard kurtz mark of approval™.  malkin recently fell out of that category when she printed the schip kid's name and addy. He didn't like that at all.
