Introducing Alex Pareene
Salon's new War Room blogger says hello
April 28, 2010 6:25PM (UTC)
Hello, all. I'm Alex Pareene. I'll be your new War Room Czar. I'm thrilled to join the Salon family, and I hope you all enjoy lengthy, obsessively detailed Gossip Girl recaps. (Kidding! I only watch House.)
I'm from Minneapolis, I live in Brooklyn, and I once spent 18 drunken months covering DC. Politically, I'm basically your typical effete coastal liberal elitist.
So! I was, formerly, the politics editor for Gawker.com, Rush Limbaugh's favorite gossip website, and before that I edited Wonkette. (Before that I spent most of my time drinking cheap canned beers and arguing about music.)
You can follow me on "The Twitters" or shoot me an email at email@example.com (once I actually get my email set up). I've been off for a week, so just give me a minute to catch up on the various horrible crimes against reason and common decency committed by senators named Nelson and then we'll get started.
Alex Pareene writes about politics for Salon and is the author of "The Rude Guide to Mitt." Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow him on Twitter @pareene
