Kaus comes clean, a little

Slate blogger Mickey Kaus posted at Kausfiles that news of his run against Sen. Barbara Boxer got out sooner than he hoped, courtesy of the LA Weekly's news blog, and explains a little of what it's all about.

The basic idea would be to argue, as a Democrat, against the party's dogma on several major issues (you can guess which ones). Likeminded Dem voters who assume they will vote for Sen. Boxer The Incumbent in the fall might value a mechanism that lets them register their dissent in the primary.

Next phase: Lowering expectations!

P.S: Several issues, including my role at Slate, are still to be resolved. But you will always be able to reach this blog at www.kausfiles.com.

Slate editor Jacob Weisberg jokes in the comments: "Nobody else runs for office this year. We have a magazine to put out." As I posted yesterday, Kaus has taken out the papers but hasn't yet returned them.
