Hendrik Hertzberg Loses His Blogging Virginity

WWD‘s Irin Carmon informs us that former chief speechwriter for President Carter and TNR editor Hendrik Hertzberg is blogging — blogging! — from the YearlyKos Convention from Chicago for The New Yorker. “Wham. Bam. Here goes my blogging virginity. It isn’t so bad,” Hertzberg begins his first post, quick on the draw.

That was three days ago. Since then, Hertzberg has blogged about whether YearlyKos takes the definite article, was “almost lost in the humongous giganticness of McCormick Place,” and expected the crowd to look weirder.
