From the Admin Desk: Week 14

To our Indian readers, we wish

Happy Diwali!!

Enjoy the lights and the sweets, but stay safe.

So the midterm elections in the U.S. are done, the Dems have received quite a drubbing. We don't subscribe to any party, but the Republican resurgence, primarily the Tea Party wave, deserves a nod from us. So we called up three prominent female faces of the Tea Party and begged them to write for us. One of them is a vitriolic conservative blogger, another was the Republican nominee from Delaware, and the third one is so familiar that you've probably already guessed who she is.

It was a tough job, getting in touch with them and convincing them that we were genuinely interested in what they had to say, and that their posts would not end up being parodied on Jon Stewart's show (it may, but we wouldn't have leaked advance copies). We'll try and have the Democratic point of view as well, when they sneak out of their bunkers and turn on their cellphones.
