Oh, what the hell.  It's late, I have a diary to burn, and things have been tense here, so I think people can use a little fun tonight.

Markos announced today that he will be writing an election year column for Newsweek, and also that "Newsweek is 'balancing' [him] out with someone that should make heads on our side explode."  But Markos won't tell us who that is.

We had a lot of good guesses in the other item, and now we need a poll.  Who will be the anti-Kos?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket  "I got your fair use justification right here, pal!"

Update, noon PST Thursday 11/15:  as of this writing, 17 people got it right: Karl Rove.

This diary is not associated with any candidate or campaign.

I've culled some of the top guesses from his diary, but feel free to introduce your own.  And the more explanation for your guess, the better.  And the funnier the explanation, the better, also.  Remember, this will probably be ported to RedState and the like, so keep that in mind.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
