The Jerk Who Ruined Wonkette (Me!)
Me and my day job
The hobo parade continues at Wonkette this week, with the latest shiftless and dubiously clothed guest editor being me, Justin Peters. What do I know about Washington? In terms of being "in the loop," I fall somewhere between Charlie Brotman and Blelvis, but I recently bought a computer (this "Information Age" intrigues me) and I can't think of a better place to learn how to use it than in front of millions of bitchy, complaining readers.
You want qualifications? I used to work at the Washington Monthly, I write irregularly for Slate, I edit a soon-to-debut magazine called Polite, and I dabble in moviemaking. Yeah, I'm not impressed either. I've never blogged before, which is why the guest-blogging offer came as a bit of a surprise, but scrape the bottom of the barrel long enough and you come up with me, I guess. Hey, at least I have a college degree!
So before Denton, Steele and Pareene figure out their mistake, I hope to use this platform to launch several poorly-spelled and slanderous brickbats against various enemies, namely:
1) The Library of Congress: Its "no jelly in the reading rooms" policy is arbitrary and unfair, and possibly illegal.
2) U.S. Rep. Michael R. McNulty, D-NY: Not for his politics, but for having the worst, cheapest-looking Web site in the House. Glad to see you're getting your money's worth from that copy of Microsoft FrontPage 97, guys.
3) Blelvis: You've owned the streets long enough, old man.
Let's get started!
