A "Thank You" to Kos

Posted by DavidNYC

I want to give a very big thank you to Markos at DailyKos - not just for his recent plug of this site, but, more importantly, for the inspiration he's given me. It's safe to say that without DKos, I never would have embarked on this project. And the fantastic new "diary" feature on the new Scoop-powered site gave me the final push I needed.

I've been reading Kos for almost exactly a year now, so I'm not quite as quick a learner as he is. But Kos has been a fantastic teacher and I am very proud to be one of his blogchildren.

Hi Dave, that must have taken a search to find that post by Markos... in the beginning... Nice idea for a site, how it goes well.

Heheh... as a matter of fact, I remembered that post pretty well, so all I had to do was plug in "MyDD" into Google (and restrict the search to DailyKos.com). I guess this makes you my blog granddaddy! Thanks for the good wishes.

I think Michigan is safe democratic.

Dave, great to see what you're beginning at this blog. My knowledge of the various swing states' politics is pretty minimal so I hope to learn a lot. I'll be here reading from time to time, even if I - due to ignorance - don't end up posting too often.

I've certainly respected your many insightful posts at dKos, and I thank you for taking on this important effort.
