(note to Xranadu Hutman, Klytus and rupert: don't even bother . . .)

COOL BEANS!

I did apply for the Farhad Manjoo position. I work well with people who have OCD and psychopathy and I could have saved Joan the cost of studio time at Current TV.

Sadly I am no longer in San Francisco so even if they pull their heads out of their asses and offer me a job it's a heluva commute from Washington DC to San Francisco.

Besides, I already have a psychopathic boss that I can play with here. Psychopaths are just like little kids in adult bodies - they are SOOOO cute. A two dimensional cartoon character is so much easier to deal with than a goldfish. Think Stewie on Family guy. That is your typical psychopath.

Joan, make me an offer! I are a Salon celebrity now!

Get me some press credentials and I can have a lot of fun in DC.

I aim to please and I can craft the best BS in the world!

The jobs have already been taken. No need to apply as KateTex and AKASmith will quadruple up 7x24; only this time they will be given their own individual private planes and expense accounts and ivy drips of relentless Obama attacks and Hillary 2012 talking points. Joan will act in the persona of an objective journalist at least till 2012, by which time Salon will no longer exist and Joan, reading the writing on the wall, will join the White Supremacist Rights Movement, along with her most die hard Party Unity My Ass sisters.

L T Bohita. AKA the last of the Bohicans wrote something for Open Salon today about "summertime" and "wedgies." Most be some sorta strange PUMA prison torture I've nver heard of. I just hope it doesn't involve ants, and that I am never apprehended and subjected to it.

Awesome as usual. I love how you keep approaching the parody from slightly different angles.

By the way, rupert, many of Salon's correspondents are in NYC, and I think they have an office in Wash DC as well. So go for it!

There's a new social malady on the rise! AKASmith accuses Hutman of having "Joan envy." You heard it here first.

WHO is AKASmith? Her MO says: "An ageing, bitter, unpleasant woman living in Escondido, California, who spends her days parsing the sentences of total strangers and her nights writing endless self righteous pontifications on Salon to pass her time. Sometimes, late at night, in the dark, she laughs inappropriately."

AKA Smith is Joan's imaginary friend.... and maureenodonnell is Joan's fictional Irish alter-ego

Anonymous nailed it.

Klytus is now AKASmith's bosom buddy. Politics makes for strange bedfellows.

If a PUMA cannot be spayed, defanged, or even neutered, perhaps the old and angry cats, need to be talked to, or even tutored.

It's just a possible explanation.

madame, I must disagree, maureen is Joan's Irish setter alter-ego.

Fellow Salon satirists. Here's a job you can apply for. You won't even need an application to apply for this potentially creative fun little vocation. If ever you come across the Salon letters poster called susan sunflower, set your satical wits to full power, and mercilessly dig in with a devilish abandon of complete devastation and devour.

maureenodonnell is a sock puppet of AKA Smith.
