Josh Marshall has the bad habit of mentioning something ultra-interesting and then shunting it off with a "more later...", though anxious readers checking back later rarely discover more. Unfortunately, it seems his buddy Steve Clemons has seen Josh that trait and raised him a "thermonuclear exchange". In context of a post on presidential speaking fees, Steve writes:
Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage*
*(TWN Note: Armitage is worth much more as he is the guy who really did stop a thermonuclear exchange between Pakistan and India about 90 minutes before the missiles began to fly. . .no joke)
You uh, want to elaborate on that one, Steve? Suddenly the speaking fees seem a smidge beside the point.
