Who is Mr. Silence Dogood?

One of the problems with working in politics is you can't express your true opinions. At least not to a public audience.

Enter our political insider, the pseudonymous Mr. Silence Dogood.

He chose his nom de plume based on a similar faux identity assumed by one of our nation's founding fathers. Ben Franklin = Mrs. Silence Dogood. So is Mr. Silence Dogood similarly transgendered by his (her?) pen? Or is it a trick to throw you off his/her trail?

Damned if I know.

But I like his/her stuff. Even when I don't agree.

By all accounts, it's been too busy a political environment to get any writing done, but more will be forthcoming at some point. In the meantime, Mr. Silence Dogood's contributions dominate OO's Politics Page. See what you think.
