Free At Last!

After serving proudly as Attorney General John Ashcroft’s Chief Speechwriter (and a senior policy advisor) throughout the entire war on terror, and after hanging around to pitch in for Attorney General Gonzales, my beloved bride is moving on. She turned in her cleats today. She’s not sure what she’ll be doing next, but she felt it was about time. Maybe now she’ll tell me all that super-cool secret stuff she swore she didn’t know. Alas, this doesn’t really free me up to criticize Gonzales too much since I’d already been doing that for a while. But at least now I don’t have to drop the full-disclosure bomb all the time.

Anyway, she’s got some interesting prospects but if anybody out there has any keen ideas or knows about any great opportunities (preferably of the work-from-home and/or part-time variety) please drop me a line (I’m freelancing this post by the way). She’s written a great book, edited a magazine, written speeches for a great many leading politicians, has a masters from SAIS, is an Alaskan beauty and has made only one obviously questionable decision: she married down.

Shaming Women Who Vote Right

Think I’m exaggerating? See this ... Read More
