I would be remiss in not mentioning my UNPRECEDENTED SECOND WIN in the third Carnival of the Liberals, for my stupendous post on imperial powers, Against the Imperial Presidency.  I had planned to write a stunning critique on uber-putz Jonah Goldberg for my CotL submission, but all his recent output was beyond boring and offered little to sink my teeth into.  So instead, I went with the unpolished Imperial post, which would have been delayed a few more days, if not for the Jan 3 submission deadline.  In fact, I’m in the process of moving and hadn’t intended to post anything, but realized that my plans to pull a THREE-PEAT later this month would be a bit more difficult if I didn’t win a second time.  And now that I see that the next judge is JR Kinnard from Don’t Floss With Tinsel (a brilliant brilliant person with more wisdom than Solomon himself) I feel confident that said three-peat should not be a problem.

Needless to say, that third victory is now all but assured, but don’t let that stop you from gunning for one of the other nine victory slots.  Not everyone’s a winner, but if you’re a reader of this site, you’ve already got a natural brain-up on the competition.  Here’s the submission form.  It’s open to all liberal bloggers, so give it a go, and remember, even if you lose, you’ll probably lose to me and there’s no indignity in that.  And if I don’t win, then you’ll know that the fix is in, and that we’ll just have to boycott the contest until the end of time; and there is no indignity in that either.  Good luck.

Such humility and restraint. How do you do it? :-)

I think someone's been taking good advice from Stephen Colbert. Did you read his Tek Jansen book yet?
