Moving to The Washington Post

By
Monday, March 22, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Michael Calderone has the story — next month I’ll be taking my reporting from TWI to The Washington Post. I want to take a moment to point out that the sort of journalism I do wouldn’t have been possible without TWI. There’s more coverage of conservative politics (especially movement politics) than there was when I began here, but what we’ve been able to do differently at TWI is deep reporting, and context, and giving time and space for the key players to explain themselves. We do that on every issue we cover, and I’m looking forward to my move from a TWI reporter to an avid TWI reader.

Editor’s note: Dave’s coverage of the conservative movement — from the birthers and the Tea Parties to the GOP’s leadership strategies and philosophical underpinnings — has been nothing short of groundbreaking. While we’ll miss him tremendously, we applaud the Post for its brilliant and forward-thinking move, and we’re proud that his new position will allow his important reporting to reach a wider audience. Congratulations to Dave, and congratulations to the Post!

Congrats Dave. The Post can use more decent reporting to balance it's ridiculous opinion pages. That said, you'll be missed by TWI readers.

I think we need to thank Ann Dunham-Soetoro for this. It wasn't for the whole “Where in the world was Ann Dunham-Soetoro's uterus in 1961?” game, I don't think I (and a lot of folks) would have heard of Dave Weigel.

I'm teasing, congrats and hope it rocks and maybe one day you'll take George Will's seat on ABC's This Week.

Also RIP Dr. Dunham-Soetoro. I think in all the birther coverage, that it's all centered around a naive, overwhelmed and wide-eyed 18-year-old who got knocked-up back in 1960.

I saw this on Politico (via The Other McCain) before I dropped in for my daily TWI visit. Congratulations, and best of luck at the Post!

Mostly girls spend their time to getting dressed, makeup and hairstyling before they go to a Prom event. How to choose the best prom dresses and suitable hair extensions (for a prom hairstyle) are important for them. clip on hair extensions and cheap prom dresses could be easily found on the Internet.
