I'm delighted to welcome this week's Guest Contributor: veteran journalist and intrepid blogger Robert Stacy McCain. A frequent contributor to The American Spectator and the co-author (with Lynn Vincent) of Donkey Cons (2006), McCain spent 11 years writing and editing at The Washington Times before hanging up his bloggy shingle at The Other McCain.
A native of Atlanta and graduate of Jacksonville (Ala.) State University, McCain was awarded the George Washington Medal by the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge in 1996 for his series of columns in the Rome (Ga.) News-Tribune about the National Standards for U.S. History. He lives in western Maryland with his wife and six children.
The consummate insider's consummate outsider, McCain is equally at home in the deserts of the Sudan and the wilds of the Georgetown cocktail circuit. I'm sure he'll fit right in. Help him feel at home anyway, won't you?
