New Hot Air Poster: A Great Choice

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:01 am

The announcement has been made. I’ll make you click the link to find out who it is. But it is awesome.

Hint: my predictions below were all wrong.

Good luck to Bryan Preston in his new gig with Laura Ingraham, and good luck/congratulations to the new man at the helm.

UPDATE: Just saying “awesome” doesn’t do it justice. This is literally the best pick I can imagine: a great writer, original journalist, and sensible thinker. I love it!

The addition confirms Hot Air’s status as the number one go-to site for conservative blog readers. It already was with Allahpundit, but this doesn’t hurt a bit.

I gotta say, though: Allahpundit is still tops in my book. Best blogger working today, bar none.

  1. I couldn’t agree more!!! I look forward to Ed at HA….I read him daily and although I will miss him at his private site, I’ll catch up with him at HA. Patterico, keep up the good work.

    I totally agree, but I just hope Ed maintains his originality and style that was exclusive to Captain’s Quarters. AP and the Cap will be interesting to see at one site and they are both “top notch” writers.

  4. I just wish they’d include more content in their RSS feed. I stopped checking them for a while due to that. But, as evidence of your point about the quality of the blog, I’ve started reading them again despite having to click every freakin link to really see what its about.

    Yeah, whatever. Like I said before, when you started posting there, Patterico is the better brand.

  6. Does this mean I can clean up my favorites by ditching the Quarters?

    Here’s hoping that he at least posts there as well from time to time.

    According to the Capt the old blog will remain online for the archive, but he will be moving all his posting to Hot Air. Also is shutting down his current Blog Talk radio show but still keeping another under his name until he re brands under the Hot Air label some how.

  8. Ed has another radio show on Blog Talk radio that he will be keeping besides the Heading Right show which will stop for him at the end of the week.
