My homey and former roommate Jason Horowitz just started his new job as staff writer at the Washington Post. Jason is a good friend, a dangerous drinking partner, and real deal journalist. He paid his dues writing for years for the New York Observer, and I’m very happy he now has a bigger platform.
His first Post piece is about the Cheney family’s rapidly enlarging sphere of darkside influence. Here’s the opener:

Mary Cheney, the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney and the sister of go-to Obama critic Liz Cheney, is leaving the political consulting firm Navigators Global to start her own consulting company, and multiple sources familiar with her plans say she will not be going it alone.
“She told me she is going to be starting a firm with her dad and sister,” said one friend of Mary’s, with whom she has shared her plans.
Read the rest here.
