By the way, some folks are asking why I don't announce actual job openings and then hire the "most qualified" candidate -- whether they be young, old, gay, straight, boy, girl -- more or less the way Josh Marshall at TalkingPointsMemo.com does it. The answer? Johnny A-List needs people who he feels comfortable with. Because, let's be honest, what's really the most important part of everyone's job here?
Helping Johnny A-List be Johnny A-List, that's what.
Happy Memorial Day!
