    Cool. Should be good fun and we’ll have a better comments section than BJ. Just don’t go for the pet obsession thing.Report

  2. Of course I’ll join you! I think it’s splendid that you’ve decided to coalesce to form a unified “voice of the Left” here at OT, and it’s wonderful to have such intelligent, thoughtful writers contributing to the intellectual ferment and diversity of opinions.

    I don’t know why, but Ethan’s stuff has rarely struck me as clearly coming from “The Left”…maybe for the same reason that when we took that “2012 Candidate Quiz”, I came out with almost as much affinity for Jill Stein as I did for Gary Johnson…like maybe he hits where both libertarianish and leftish start to shade into anarchish?

    NOTE TO SELF: Register new political party: the Ish Party…where we takes the best, and we leaves the rest.

    Anyway, cool new digs, guys.Report
