Welcome Robert Stacy McCain

 

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?

    Welcome. (But I’d still rather have Tila Tequila, who would bring a fresh perspective to the site.)

    Tila Tequila? Go for the gold, man: Alyssa Milano.

    Robert Stacy McCain, Guest Contributor: Tila Tequila? Go for the gold, man: Alyssa Milano. · Aug 22 at 9:12am

    Alyssa is too staid. Tila brings that deranged vibe so lacking here.

    Welcome. It’s always good to see another Southerner on board.

    Aaron, just asking…do you have indoor toilets?

    And what the heck is a “grit”, anyway?

    Stacy — I hope you won’t finish the week without telling us something about life with six kids. How does back-to-school night work?
