A Political Blogger, Untamed, Rattles Cages in D.C.

WONKETTE


THE WONKETTE
: Ana Marie Cox is the saucy writer behind a weblog about politics that is attracting a following in election-year Washington, D.C.

The Washington Post's Anne Schroeder, in an interview with The Christian Science Monitor's Danna Harman, references Washington, D.C.-based blog, wonkette.com, and says of editor Ana Marie Cox: “She's fun and fresh and right on the money — and is writing what others think but can't always write ... She can curse, for example.”

Harman, herself, writes that wonkette.com “is also another example of the boundary-busting powers of the Internet, where writers like to be less deferential to authority” — an entirely salutary trait in a writer, always.

Mischief-making, with a sense of humour and a fresh, informed and irreverant take on the events of the day, now that sounds like a formula for blogging success. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that Ms. Cox's politics are left — “big fat commie pinko,” as she puts it.
