Hear ye, hear ye

"You've got an opinion, but do you have what it takes to be heard? "

Let's be honest. The MWBT&PC is an opinionated bunch. That's clearly implied in the Brain Trust part of the charter. The question is, are we as good as we think we are?

The Washington Post is hosting an essay competition titled "America's Great Next Pundit" (the title alone shows how desperate they are for new talent). I think this is a great opportunity to get some national exposure for the MWBT&PC. Each member should enter this competition. The WP will start by choosing ten finalists, and clearly, there is a great chance that all of us make it to this next round.

So, the gauntlet is thrown. I challenge each and every one of thee to enter the AGNP competition at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/opinions/pundit-contest/index.html

May the best brain trustee win....

So are we still going to make 'Striking distance' references in our essays?

Lord Johnson said...

Hell yeah! We are at our best when our punditry is focussed on Striking Distance. Though, you've done quite well with the Three Rivers stuff.

See you in the finals!

400 words, I'm much too verbose for those restraints. I'll have to use really big words with a lot of hyphens I suppose.
