Didn’t you used to be called Mom-in-a-Million?
Yeah. That was the name I picked out of thin air when I first set this blog up. I thought then that I’d write funny anecdotes about being a mom.
Why don’t you write funny anecdotes about being a mom?
Sometimes I do, actually. I write about babies and kids at Babble.com. But I limit the scope of my mom-related writing. I’m not willing to share many details about my husband or my kids because I’m psycho about their privacy. Rather than expose the details of their lives, I tend to write about my opinions.
So, basically you suck at mom-blogging.
Pretty much, yeah.
What is a pundit?
A pundit is a person who bloviates at length about a variety of subjects, usually politics and culture. At least that’s what I bloviate about. Like Rachel Maddow but not nearly as cool.
What do you mean by Stay At Home Pundit?
Well, I’m a stay at home mom but I used to be active in policy stuff. I actually have a masters in cultural policy studies and I spent a lot of years doing federal advocacy work for a non-profit. All of that means I’m moderately well-informed about how the federal government works and I feel like I can state opinions on politics with confidence. And I do it from the comfort of my couch with my kids frolicking about. So, Stay At Home Pundit.
Has anyone ever told you that if you have to work that hard to explain something, it probably isn’t funny?
Yeah. ::Hangs head::
Are you part of the liberal media?
I’m part of the liberal blogosphere. I’m no journalist. I’m just a loudmouth leftie with an internet connection.
Why should anyone listen to you?
Because I will never knowingly lie to you and I will always do my best to disclose my biases.
That sounds good. Maybe you should run for office.
Bahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Hahahhahahaha! Hahahaha! No.
