Speaking of moribund fourth-rate conservative sites, I decided to check out the Daily Tucker to see how their own recycled conservative hire is doing. The answer, apparently, is that Kaus has started his new gig with a lengthy vacation. Which seems all too appropriate!
Still, you think Tucker could have had someone write a bot that would produce the same three posts the real Kaus would have written again and again during this time (“Unions suck!” “Immigrants suck!” “The new Democratic Party can then replace Obama and go with Shuler/From ’12, woo-hoo!”) with the requite random boldfacing and mock-editor interventions. Perhaps Tucker is negotiating to trade Kaus and Carey Roberts to Kelsey Grammer for Victor Davis Hanson and a hack to be named later.
