The Problem

I hinted once that my discussion of Shailagh Murray with someone caused me to begin referring to her as "The Devil." Let me elaborate a bit.

The scene: a bar, having drinks.

The conversation (about blogs and journalists):

Person who is not me: For example, Shailagh Murray of the Washington Post is an excellent reporter and a very good friend.

Me: (jaw on floor, in almost hysterical voice) but...but...but.. Shailagh Murray is the devil!

The punchline: Person who is not me is a not insignificant Democratic campaign manager type person.

Joke's on all of us.
