the blog of DC Drinking Liberally

Fame and Fortune Are Ours!


Today was mentioned in The Examiner. Okay, it’s a free paper, and maybe it’s not exactly liberal, but we take what we can get. As it turns out, the mention was in an editorial, “Scott McClinton”, that reproduced (badly) the table of repeated phrases from my “Analyzing the ScottBot” post of last week. Notice how they cleverly insert a jab at Clinton into their criticism of Bush — actually I guess it’s really just criticism of Scott McClellan. Still, it’s nice to be appreciated.

Speaking of fame and this blog, you may have noticed that we could use another blogger or two here. If you’re a semiregular (or at least an occasional) at DCDL gatherings and you’d like to contribute to the blog, leave a comment here, e-mail me (, or find one of us at Timberlake’s Thursday.


  1. I looked over the editorial a couple of times, and I’m pretty sure that the Clinton reference was meant as a compliment.

    Well done, or as they say in Boston, mad props.

  2. I’m not sure we’ve quite reached the point where Republicans use “Clintonian” as a compliment. Maybe in a few more months, when we’ll still be seeing careful parsing of words from White House. And after all, the Big Dog is palling around with Poppy (and Hillary is becoming friendly with Newt Gingrich and Rupert Murdoch). It’s possible the Clintons aren’t rabid Michael Moorites.
