What a week it’s been. The Iowa caucuses are done past, and boy howdy did the Trump people kick some and take some. It’s still early in the game, but as far as the GOP nomination goes, Trump is still the guy to beat – how that shakes out in November still depends a lot on who his opponent will end up being.
Later today, I’ll be taking my next steps deeper into the Wide, Wide World of Journalism. I’ll be interviewing an up-and-coming Republican political candidate, and I think you all will find it interesting. Watch these virtual pages for details. After this, I intend to give this candidate’s opposing numbers equal time; we’ll see how that works out.
Keep your eyes peeled; next week I have scheduled an interview with Nick Begich III, the Alaska Republican who is challenging Mary Peltola for the Great Land’s at-large House seat. Should be interesting, and will definitely be fun!
For those of you who may not have caught the sticky post on the front page, I’ll be at CPAC 2024 in Maryland this year, from Feb. 21-24. If anyone who reads these virtual pages will be attending, let me know! I’ll be hanging around with the Townhall Media Group folks a lot of the time, but figure on doing some wandering and hopefully catching up with some of my indy blogger buddies. If you’re going to be there, let me know in the comments!
Welcome to the first Red Thursday, where you will find a few comments and a link-fest to my professional journalisming for the previous week. I’m calling it “Red Thursday” because the bulk of my professional work is at RedState, because I live in a red state, and because, who doesn’t love pretty girls in red?
Oh, and the last section on our new Red Thursday posts will include some links to stories by some of my colleagues that I thought y’all would find interesting. Check them out.
We return now to our original Wednesday/Hump Day links posts. Come back tomorrow for Red Thursday, wherein you can find links to all my professional journalisming for the previous week, along with some hand-picked pieces by some of my colleagues, along with, well, whatever else I decide to put in there.
I can’t believe this is already the last Hump Day post of 2023! Watch, though, for Friday’s Rule Five post, as we will be announcing some changes and some fun new stuff for the sight. Rest assured our Blue Monday, Hump Day, Rule Five Friday and Saturday Gingermageddon displays of toothsome totty will continue, as well as me bringing you my take on the events of the day.
Programming notes: As this is the last Wednesday before Christmas, I’ll just note that there won’t be any regular posts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day proper (Christmas Eve is on a Sunday, anyway, when I normally don’t post) but I will bring you some toothsome holiday totty on those days.
In between the holidays, regular posts will be going up as usual, including next week’s Hump Day links compendium and Rule Five Friday. New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day will repeat the Christmas totty schedule, then on Jan 2nd, 2024, regular posts resume. In other words, I plan on battering away at my keyboard over the holidays pretty much as usual, here and at RedState.
2024. Can you believe it? What the hell happened to 2023? Oh, and with the New Year, we’ll do our annual traditional celebration of diversity on our Saturday posts, so you all have that to look forward to. And in the new year, we’ll have some changes on the site, and some new stuff for you all to look forward to.
Digging out is always fun. We had a storm system move through earlier in the week, and while snowfalls were modest here, up north of Talkeetna there was a considerable amount of white stuff landing.
I mean, who expected that? Snow, in Alaska, in winter?
It’s usually the winters that do the noobs in. This is our fourth winter in the Great Land, and we love it more than ever. Every cat its own rat, as my grandfather was fond of saying.
Oh, and a programming note; I have a few new things planned for the site and for my online presence in general, tying in my RedState work with this blog and, possibly, other opportunities. Stay tuned! 2024 is going to be interesting, for a variety of reasons.
We had a great time with the family and just got back early Saturday morning so this post will be a tad… abbreviated. We’ll be getting back to our normal routine this week, so expect things to return to normal.
