A Fix Note: Of Baby Fix and the Future

No, this isn't the post where we announce the arrival of Baby Fix -- although we expect his/her (we really don't know!) first day on earth sometime in the very near future.

With the arrival imminent, however, we are going to be changing the format of the Fix slightly for the next few weeks.

Each day we'll have the White House Cheat Sheet -- the one stop guide for all the news (and analysis) you need to know about 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the campaign trail and whatever else in the political world strikes our fancy.

But, unless there is a HUGE political story out there that we simply can't resist sounding off on, we won't be doing any more than that one post on any given day.

For you Friday Line lovers out there, never fear: we will still put out a Line every Friday including tomorrow when we break down the ten governors' mansions most likely to switch sides in 2009/2010.

Thanks to all the Fixistas out there for the well wishes to Mrs. Fix in advance of the baby's arrival. And thanks in advance for understanding the slight slowdown in Fix posts over the next few weeks as we adjust to being new parents.

What, are you guys kidding? There will be plenty of time between contractions to Twitter from the delivery room, as long as the Fix is front and center when ice chips, back rubs, breathing help, etc. are needed by Mrs. Fix. Inquiring minds want to know! This is kinda like having a grandchild.

Chris,

Good luck to you and your wife on the pending arrival.

Take as much time as you need to bond with your new baby, we need a break from the moronic comments that are being sent in.

I guessed that as soon as the Democrats took over...someone would be asking for Paternity Leave!!

We are thinking of you -- and please forget you ever posted this schedule. We will expect to hear from you when we hear from you. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

The post below is dedicated to "Baby Fix," who deserves to grow up in an America that values the constitutionally-protected rights of all citizens...

Posted by: scrivener50 | February 20, 2009 1:45 AM | Report abuse

ONGOING 'EXTRAJUDICIAL PUNISHMENT NETWORK'
TORTURES INNOCENT BUT TARGETED AMERICANS...

...WITH DOJ-APPROVED RADIATION WEAPONS AND GOV'T-SUPPORTED COMMUNITY GANG STALKING.

WHEN WILL BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER RESTORE THE RULE OF LAW IN BUCKS COUNTY, PA, PHILA., NYC, D.C. AND ALL ACROSS AMERICA?

An IMMEDIATE series of executive orders banning the Bush-Cheney extrajudicial punishment vigilante network"...

...and its coordinated array of "programs of personal destruction"...

...could dismantle this American Gestapo -- and stop the persecution of untold thousands of unconstitutionally "targeted" U.S. citizens and their families...

...a methodical social genocide that surely has contributed to the mortgage meltdown that spawned the global financial crisis.

The "Truth Commission" can wait.

First, President Obama and Atty. Gen. Holder, end the crimes against humanity and the unconstitutional abuses of power.

IT IS DAY 32 OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

DO YOU R*E*A*L*L*Y KNOW WHAT YOUR SECURITY MULTI-AGENCY COORDINATION NETWORK IS UP TO?

congrats on the baby Chris!!! thanks for the blog! :)

Well, in three years or so, the baby can start posting to make up for lost time.

Good luck. Hope there aren't eight new Fixes. That's too much to handle.

listen you frickin swimmy head, we are tired of your back story. We want political news, if you spent more time digging and scratching and throwing shoes you might have something more then your pandering about your mutant off spring. Unless this is a women's blog post? Grow some nads!

Congratulations in advance! And remember, no Tweeting from the delivery room - none!!!

Chris,

Good luck from Australia! While there is a bit of work involved (and a few sleepless nights) I recommend it enough that my wife and I are going to go through it all again in about four months time.

Enjoy the fruits of your (and primarily Mrs. Fix's!) labour!

Cheers

Darn you, The Fix! You lure us in with great reporting and writing and cast us off. And for what? A baby.

In all seriousness, buddy, we're all ecstatic for you and the wife and can't wait for The Fixinfant to come into the world.

I'm looking forward to the news, Chris, but please carefully consider this one piece of unsolicited advice:

Don't twitter the delivery.

No charge.

Posted by: jrosco3 | February 19, 2009 8:33 PM | Report abuse

Oh, there'll be a slowdown in the postings, alright. New dads are busier than ever.

Sometimes I like to call our baby "Constant Attention Girl." Like she's a superhero, I guess. (Well, she is the best baby in the world!)

Ah, but babies will be babies. More importantly, babies MUST be babies.

Enjoy!

Hi Chris, I've been following daily to see if there's news about your child's grand entrance. Best of luck to you and your wife. But would you do me a favor? Unless you cloned yourself, why do you always use the royal "we" when referring to yourself? It reminds me of arrogant judges who refer to themselves as "we". "I" is perfectly appropriate, don't you think? Thanks for considering this suggestion.

wickerparkbob: someone forcing you to read this? If so, off with their heads!
Wishing you all the best with work and baby, Chris - you'll be inundated with advice from everybody. Take the best, leave the rest!

"Can we assume this means no HyperFix tweets from the delivery room?"

And, if nobody's yet asked: please, NO VIDEO.

I fully support your attempts at work/life balance.

Can we assume this means no HyperFix tweets from the delivery room?

Chris--I'm 40 and we just had my first baby 5 months ago. I assure you it will have an effect on your output. Heck, I closed my blog down because I was so exhausted. But you'll also know an unparalleled joy that makes the exhaustion worth it. Congrats, man!

Pending congrats!

You could give Ed O'Keefe another shot just to keep things fresh!

DON'T LET THE FIX GO BELLY UP !!!

we must have 15 fixes a day--
15 screens so we can dump them all in our FAVORITES and bounce around like

little Baby Fixes......

"But, unless there is a HUGE political story out there that we simply can't resist sounding off on, we won't be doing any more than that one post on any given day."

Sure, Chris. We've seen how easy it is for you to let go of the Fix before. Just remember, when juggling a baby and a laptop, never drop the baby.
