Burlington blogger and former City Councilor Haik Bedrosian interviewed writer David Sirota last Friday. Sirota is coming to Vermont on May 27 and sent an email around to local bloggers, hoping to drum up some publicity .
The interview is pure Haik. Informative, semi-serious but also sorta half-assed — in an endearing way. I'm never quite sure if he's joking. An excerpt:
HB: What's your job?
DS: I'm a political columnist and I write books.
HB: Oh. What paper do you write for?
DS: My column runs in 40 papers including the Denver Post, The Seattle Times and the San Francisco Chronicle.
HB:Yeah. I did't [sic] really do my homework for this interview. I mean, I usedto hear you on the Al Franken show. Ma-ma-ma-ma-my-my-my Sirota. Wecan't get Air America on the radio in Burlington anymore. Hey! Do youknow Rachel Maddow?
DS: I'm on her show all the time.
