PYSBRIoM: Eugene Robinson

Eugene Robinson is a regular columnist at the Washington Post. He's also a regular on MSNBC, where he pals around with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. Me likes him.

I'm bringing him up specifically today because, contrary to this blog's subheading, I'll take an ego stroke where I can get it. Today's column by Robinson echoes my post from yesterday about BO's closing of Gitmo. (Not that I had any real original insights into it.) But what I really like about this one is how he echoes a previous post of mine that referenced "known unknowns" and "unknown unknowns" at its tail end. Yes yes, Gene, I used that Rumsfeld reference already.

Okay, also probably not a terribly original concept, but still.

Don't read him because he agrees with me. Read him because he's good. And check out Olbermann and Maddow, while you're at it, if you don't already. (And if you read this, you probably do.) He'll show up.

I'm off to check him out.

Help me; what does PYSBRIoM mean?

Hang on... "People You Should Be Reading Instead of Me"? THAT can't be right; the I can't stand for "Instead..."

Indeed it does. But hey, if you got the time...
