Grading Ben Smith
That's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Priorities" from last night -- as I like to think of it, Barack tells America to go fly a kite.
Ben Smith, I swear you got a little Jay Carney in you and, no, that's not a good thing. Ben announces his new blog for POLITICO today in a post that's overly long.
Don't tell us what you're going to do, show us.
And the other mistake is that the link goes to his blog announcement which is also his blog but you're not clued into that fact. He should have had a 'home' link so that people could go from the announcement essay easily to the latest at the blog.
Instead, you have to figure it out yourself.
But I'm not a tough grader and Ben could easily get an A+ from me before the week's out.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
