My brother is getting married next week.... in Maui. And gosh darn it, if the Drezner clan has no choice but to head out to Maui in order to demonstrate a little family solidarity, so be it!
[You in Hawaii...that sounds familiar--ed. Yes, but that was for business; this is for family. It's like apples and oranges... or mangoes and papayas, if you will.]
Anyway, for my loyal readers, I've arranged for some stimulating guest-bloggers for this upcoming week while I perform my arduous best-man duties. The idea came after my own guest stint at Kevin Drum's Political Animal (which Kevin ably summarizes here). Many of the commenters over there lamented that no conservative blog had extended a similar courtesy to a liberal blogger.
So.... in the interest of fair play, I've invited some extremely smart liberals to blog here for the week. Let me introduce them:
That David Greenberg fellow will also be guest-blogging here:
A farewell warning to my readers -- Nossel and Greenberg are liberals, and they're going to have some different takes on politics and foreign policy than I. Feel free to challenge them with your comments -- but no threats of bodily harm, OK?posted by Dan on 05.06.05 at 09:17 PM

Dan: "Many of the commenters over there lamented that no conservative blog had extended a similar courtesy to a liberal blogger."
OK, they must be pretty far-Left if to them you're "conservative" enough to actually be called a "conservative blogger"...
While I'll note the intentions are great, and debate across political lines is interesting and worthwhile. I agree with the above poster, if he was really serious he could have picked a more committed Conservative (not that there's anything wrong with moderates or anything) to present the 'Conservative view'.
I suspect that Drum was afraid the heads of his readers would explode, just looking at their reaction to your first post.posted by: Cutler on 05.06.05 at 09:17 PM [permalink]
Anyway: good idea Dan! Can't wait to read the guest-bloggers' posts.posted by: scrub on 05.06.05 at 09:17 PM [permalink]
