Roman Holiday

ROMAN HOLIDAY….While discussing Howard Dean’s electability, Matt Yglesias, tanned and rested and back from Italy, says:

Half of campaigning is misrepresenting your opponent and getting away with it.

Indeed, but what’s the other half?

And speaking of Matt, it’s good to see you back and blogging away about politics and war and yada yada yada, but, um, what about Italy? Are you going to tell us anything about your trip?

Did you get drunk on lots of Italian wine? Make love to beautiful Italian women? Leak forged Nigerien documents to Italian newspapers?

Don’t worry, you can tell us. We’ll keep it a secret.
