Bringing Down Property Values.

Michael van der Galien has strayed from reason and asked me to occasionally write for his wildly succesful blog, Poligazette. Believe me, I'm as baffled as you are. Here's my first post there.

“Bringing Down Property Values.”

    I felt the same way when he invited me to post there. Maybe he's off his meds or something.

  2. Blogger Michael Reynolds Says:

    He's obviously scraping the bottom of the barrel. Must be the writer's strike.

  3. Blogger Randy (Internet Ronin) Says:

    Congratulations, Michael! Nice piece, although I disagree about the relative lack of mutual hate within the Democratic Party. I'm seeing signs of that in a lot of places, particularly after the last debate, among Yglesias, Talkleft and TPM commenters to name just a few sites I've wandered through the last couple of days.

    As for the candidates themselves, When David Letterman asked how the three of them got alonga couple of nights ago, he replied: "How do we get along? We can’t stand each other."

  4. Blogger Alan Stewart Carl Says:

    I see how it is. Dyre. Amba. Now you. All poligazetters. I had to ask the man nicely to just get on his blogroll. I mean, I AM functionally illiterate, but still, if he's letting in the riff-raff...

    Solid post over there, BTW. You should copyright this Bombs! Jesus! Money! stuff before you hear some smarmy MSNBC pundit using it.

  5. Blogger Michael Reynolds Says:


    Hey, look, maybe Michael Vdg just isn't that into you.

    You don't need him. There's lots of other guys in the blogosphere. Guys who will appreciate you for the unique person you are.

  6. Blogger Alan Stewart Carl Says:

    Oddly, he invited me on board this morning. Now we know he just wants to ruin all his hard work in building the site.

    I warned him that I'm not as thoughtful as Amba or as clever as Michael. But I do live in the same city as Dyre, so I got that going for me.

    ASC: although they pretend they don't like you, they're telling me to ask you "or else, you Dutch prick," they wrote.

    I think I have the answer. Its booze.
    Having bar tended for years I know that the drunker a person is the more sense I seem to make to them.
