I'm Not Going to Disneyland!


New York magazine has asked a bunch of political bloggers what they're going to do with their time once the election is over. I'm in there along with Markos Moulitsas, Markos Steynos, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ben Smith, Rachel Sklar, Jim Treacher, Ken Layne, Marc Ambinder, and others.

If this goofy little feature is any guide, don't count on victorious lefties to be your source of humor for the next four years. As Talking Points Memo's Greg Sargent put it, "Whatever short post-election respite there is will quickly be overtaken by the Obama presidency, should he win. This election is just one chapter in a much bigger story — the creation of a true and enduring 21st-century American politics, domestic and international — and I'm looking forward to focusing the site on that." I dare you to tear your eyes off that page!

Adds the Daily Kosser: "But while I may be able to scale back from sixteen-hour workdays, the election won't be the culmination of our efforts, just a waypoint. We have a big year ahead of us, and will likely scale back up in short order in support of the Obama agenda." Looks like somebody's about to finally get that hammer!
