Ex-Wonkette blogger Ana Marie Cox, our favorite person to spill drinks on at high-profile cocktail parties, has been named Washington editor of Time.com. Cox had been a contributing writer for the magazine in March.

“She will be coordinating TIME.com’s political coverage as well as continuing to create features and essays for both the print and online editions,” according to the release:

“Ana Marie is a sharp and witty observer of the Washington scene and has the ability to spot political angles in surprising places,” says [Time managing editor Richard] Stengel. “In her new role, she’ll bring her great web instincts to covering the hot topics of the day.”
