Welcome the deputy Fixes!

Close readers of this blog may have noticed that beginning yesterday, there are two new names in the Fix universe: Aaron Blake and Felicia Sonmez.

Aaron and Felicia began work yesterday as, for lack of a better word, deputy Fixes -- helping to write, research, tweet and otherwise bolster the coverage of the greatest game in the world -- politics -- in this space.

Aaron spent several years writing a campaign blog of his own at the Hill newspaper and, prior to that, worked at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He is a Minnesota native and a graduate of the University of Minnesota. Go Gophers!

Felicia worked at the Hotline before signing on to the Fix, co-editing the "Wake Up Call" morning tip sheet and contributing to the "On Call" blog. She is originally from New Jersey but, apparently does not know Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

You'll see the work of both Felicia and Aaron sprinkled throughout the Fix on a daily basis. You also should follow them on Twitter at FixFelicia and FixAaron to make sure you get their latest updates on the political news of the day.

Thanks, as always, for your continued support of the Fix. With Felicia and Aaron on board we are going to be able to give you even more political news and analysis. So, spread the word!

I see we have the main stooges present already and spouting nonsense in their usual minute by minute fashion. But where is finance whiz, the latest entry to the stooge triumverate?

armpit always gives me a good laugh? The Post leftist? LOL. They have more former Bush speechwriters on staff at once than Bush ever did. And Karuthammer and Will and Hiatt -- sure, regular marxists. twisted.

Don't forget that these are the people who regard McConnell, McCain and Bennett as liberals. They're not far right, they're just nuts.

And I know that "armpeg" is almost begging for your parody, askin' for it, but please, let's leave the moniker mangling to zouk and the rest of the cretins.

Looks like Politico had it right on 5/4/10, with their blog (re. the Washington Post new hires) "Washington Post shifts leftward Online", although I can't see how much more leftward that they can get. They're already to the left of Karl Marx and Lenin. I guess Chris Cillizza and the rest of the Washington Post's powers that be, don't know any conservatives or Republicans to bring some balance and objectivety to WaPo, especially with WaPo's Publisher Katharine Weymouth at the helm, who last year openly tried to big raise campaign bucks for Obama and the Democrats, using her own mansion as the get-together.

I noticed the tri-line in the Morning Fix. Welcome from Jake in 3D.

Only thing is, it's not a "game." Which is why the dark side apparently tries to hijack political blogs via "blog-spamming" campaigns and covert CENSORSHIP:

***

HOW ROGUE U.S. WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM USES FAKE WEB PAGES, RE-DIRECTED INTERNET INTERCEPTION TO CENSOR POLITICAL NET SPEECH, HARASS 'TARGETED' CITIZENS

• Veteran journalist exposes fusion center censorship that apparently defies policy directives of President Obama and other high administration officials.
