Dan Riehl interviewed by American Glob

by Smitty

American Glob made a quantum leap up the blogological food chain from the first interview, netting no-nonsense New Jersey-ite Dan Riehl for the next round.

Rather than try to find some juicy tidbit of the interview to excerpt, let me share a Twitter exchange that somehow didn't make the editorial cut. The moment is 01Nov09, in the afternoon, and Dede Scozzafava has withdrawn from the Republican ticket in NY-23 (which Stacy covered with such depth and insight that a bowl game reprise is surely in order--mind the tip jar) and endorsed the Democratic candidate:

Now, it's a fine point, but making jokes about peoples' names is bad form, in my opinion. Regardless of the sheer idiocy of an opponent, allow them the dignity of keeping their name intact, say I. Blast stupid ideas to ethereal atoms, but don't hammer names, physical characteristics, race, color, creed, sexual orientation, and so forth. Dan brushes aside my tender sensibilities in a most revelatory way as he re-tweets my chiding:

In reply, I play the "Too Much Information" card:
