The Daily Beast Gives Donklephant Mad Props

By  | 

This was certainly a nice surprise!

In a column that runs through names like Christopher Buckley, Kathleen Parker, Michael Smerconish, Joe Scarborough, Joe Klein and David Broder…we’re mentioned!

Here’s the photo. It focuses on Joe Gandelman and the fantastic work he has done with The Moderate Voice, but we’re right there in the description…along with our tagline.

Here’s the text…

Alongside TMV, the excellent centrist site Donklephant.com (based out of Kansas City and boasting the slogan “Big Teeth… Huge Ass.. and Surprisingly Reasonable”) and BookerRising.com, is providing a home for the center online, persisting while respected efforts like Mark Satin’s Radical Middle have gone on hiatus.

Actually, it’s BookerRising.net, but nonetheless…very cool!

Thanks John Avlon!

    I usedta surf TMV, but bailed when they went left when Gandleman added some folks who weren’t IMO very moderate.
