An Announcement...

Posted: Dec 28, 2008 8:30 AM
After two terrific years, the time has come to announce I will be leaving my full-time position at Townhall at the end of the year (I may still do some writing here -- that's still being fleshed out). 

Let me say that it has been an honor and a pleasure to get to know you these last two exciting years!

The 2008 primaries, of course, provided a great deal of excitement in the conservative blogosphere, where I would sometimes get into heated, though respectful, disagreements with smart colleagues like Dean Barnett. 

I recall back in March of '07, when I interviewed McCain aboard the Straight Talk Express in New Hampshire, as a highlight, but there were many, many others, including our coverage of the New Hampshire Primary in '08 -- Sarah Palin's announcement -- and the RNC Convention. 

Changes, of course (especially in this business), are natural -- and like the "Tucker" cable show that I once appeared on, but is now defunct, it is true that even good things do not last forever. 

Though I will keep writing in the conservative space, I am excited to announce that I have signed-on to blog for AOL, where I will continue providing conservative commentary and analysis.  (You can read my posts here.)

I also encourage you to keep up with me at, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

Lastly, let me say that getting to work with top-notch writers like Hugh Hewitt, Jonathan Garthwaite, Amanda Carpenter, Mary Katharine Ham, Dean Barnett, Carol Platt Liebau, Fred Thompson, Patrick Ruffini, et al., has been tremendously rewarding and educational.

... But none of it would be necessary if you didn't read us.  Thank you for all you do.  Let's keep in touch...
