After 36-Hour Labor, VDB Gives Birth: Announcing VDB (Weekly Edition)

by Philip Baruth

It’s tough to fight evil-doers alone. Damn tough.

Batman had Robin, Starsky had Hutch, and each of the Wonder Twins had — you know, the other Wonder Twin.

starsky, hutch, and a huge sweaterAnyway, you see VDB’s point.

In the blogging world, a lot of the best efforts are team efforts: Daily Kos and MyDD — not to mention Green Mountain Daily and Candleblog — leverage the power of like-minded individuals into something far more than the sum of their separate parts.

And we’ve taken those good lessons to heart.

As of tomorrow, VDB will partner with the Vermont Guardian to produce a weekly column called — in a triumph of counter-intuitive, out-of-the-box thinking — The Vermont Daily Briefing (Weekly Edition).

Shay Totten’s campaign coverage and investigative journalism have been truly outstanding this cycle, and more than anything we’re just proud to be associated with his operation.

To the details: VDB (Weekly Edition) will lean heavily on new material, drawing only occasionally from posts already available at this site. Subscribers and readers of the print version of The Guardian can get that new material every Friday; inevitably it will then show up in the following week’s posts here.

First of all, that’s one obese bag of weed.

But more importantly, what possible relation do these saks of weed bear to the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill? angry Tarrant shill

And how do the psychoactive mushrooms relate to Rich Tarrant’s scorched-earth campaign ads in general, and the pinched and angry mug of George Cuusella in particular?

Enquiring minds want to know.

And starting tomorrow, there will be two places to find out.
