Well, I’m about to take the Holiday weekend off. I have two twin daughters that are far more fun than this (and for the first time I get to brag about them–see here)
But for those visiting for the first time, ArchPundit is a site devoted to Illinois and National Politics. I’m a partisan Democrat and a grad student working on his PhD in Political Science. Beyond that, do a google search–when I mentioned this previously some wanted me to remain pseudonymous because they enjoy me just being the writing on the page.
For the most part, that will continue. From time to time I may comment more particularly on issues I have expertise than I have in the past, but there won’t be many changes for veteran readers.
There are two related sites. The first is Blog Saint Louis which focuses on St. Louis and Missouri politics and urban educational issues, a particular passion of mine.
I also write for The Political State Report on Illinois politics. I’ve been a bit lax there lately, but I plan on adding more there in the near future. I’ll be adding commentary to the coming Jeff Smith for Congress Blog very soon as well. Jeff is a good friend and I urge those of you in the 3rd District to learn a bit more about him. Since I know some other campaigns check in here, I have no intention of bashing other candidates and quite like the field–though I reserve the right to make fun of Russ if he puts up anymore pics like the last one I pointed out.
I also have two other features and perhaps a personal blog about to come on line as well. Both are more humor related. One is just displaying the words I receive every day from a particular public official, and the other is an inside joke. Take a look around and come back if you enjoy.
I always appreciate tips so pass them on to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to clarify whether you want to remain anonymous and whether I can use the e-mail verbatim. I respect privacy absolutely.
Some of the more popular posts over the last year include:
And for those who read the story in the RFT on the SLPS, I posted Bill Haas’ letter to Bill Roberti that suggested Roberti and Marsal were having an affair right after receiving it.
I also seem to have hit on some manueverings by Pat Quinn to jump in the Illinois Senate Race. What is still unclear is why he was using Mike Kelleher as bait.
A general article on Saint Louis Public School reform. This article spurred the Biblical Curse being extended to me.
