This is potentially the most entertaining development since... well, ever:
Pioneering political blogger Mickey Kaus took out papers to run for U.S. Senate in California, he told LA Weekly. The Venice resident said he'll run this year against Barbara Boxer for her seat. He said he took out papers at the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters.
The Democrat has been centrist and even conservative on some of the issues on which Boxer has taken a more left-leaning stand, including immigration: He does not favor amnesty and favors a more restrictive national policy.
The journalist's Wiki entry says he's also "skeptical of affirmative action, labor unions (particularly automotive workers' unions and teachers' unions), and gerrymandering of congressional districts."
I assure you, I am only temporarily at a loss for words. This blog has strayed for too long from its Kaus-hating roots; I can guarantee that this situation will soon b remedied. Via Erik.
