We just received the following press release anonymously in our e-mail in box. Lest anyone accuse of stirring up controversy for blog traffic, I’d like to remind you that this post clearly makes much more sense than we usually do, so that rules us out. We’re being honest for once, even if we have poisoned the well with our usual deep, deep unseriousness. I would also add that we’re risking our actual lives here being destroyed by f***ing missiles to post this.

I’m not joking about this. Will The Editors, currently running for president on the Editors/Airwolf ’08 ticket, actually respond to this apparently popular movement? Does the purportedly so-moderate-he-eats-tuna-safe-dolphin-just-to-be-fair give a FIG about the grass and netroots campaign for him to balance his ticket with an entity so moderate as to be inclusive of everyone?
We certainly don’t expect to hear anything about this on “serious” sites such as Talking Points “I Love Airwolf and Intend for Airworf to Sire my Helicopter Babies” Memo, but will Atrios, who has been following this race closely deign to comment? It certainly does seem that Atrios is the power behind the throne of moderacy, notwithstanding comments to the contrary.
Already we can hear the hue and cry in the streets…Everybody…WANG CHUNG..tonight!
