  3. Well, strip me naked and call me muffin.


  4. This is the most wonderful news! The left will never be the same, it will be more left, more better and left squared!!

    Driftblue 4-ever!!!

    Congratulations, mazel tov and all good wishes from another Fran!(who is at work and not commenting under her own identity! I simply could not wait!!)

  5. Congrats!!!! Honey, I am so happy for you. You deserve it! Imagine, being married to someone who 'gets' you and what matters to you!! Yay DriftBlue!

  6. Congratulation! All the best.

  7. May God bless you, Drifty and the kids with every good thing in abundance.

  8. Congratulations you two!

    I've been listening to the podcast for a few months; but I guess since that's all I've listened to (I mostly read Crooks and Liars) - I had no idea you two were a couple.

    May you have a long and happy marriage.

  9. Congratulations! It's always so nice when sexual jihadists find love ;-)

    I'm…I'm stonkered.

    Is that because I'm an effing idiot?

    It's like this just *became* The Better Universe!

  11. WOW! being a fairly new listener been saying to myself that you two seemed to be so well matched. This is cool. The best!

  12. Best wishes for love, patience, forgiveness, celebration, calm support, honest resolution of differences, courage, humor and confidence and all the rest that make partnering for life successful.

  13. I also had been listening for the past few months, and also had no idea you two were "togther" so to speak....congratulations

  14. What some people won't do for killer workshop topic at Netroots Nation!
    As I said over at your fiancee's joint, there have been so many times I've listened to the podcast (and I"ve been a fan from day one), rolled my eyes and thought "these two don"t need to get a radio deal, they need to get a room." Little did I know...
    Wonderful news and it couldn't happen to two better people. I don't think I've ever been this happy for two nearly total strangers.

  15. OMG!!
    Congratulations honey!

  16. Congratulations to you both.

  17. Congratulations to two special people who quite miraculously found each other.

    May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,

    May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

    If you lie, may you lie only to keep a friend

    If you cheat, may you cheat only death

    If you steal, may you steal your lover's heart

    If you drink, may you drink deeply of the joy of your new life together.

    Mazel Tov!

  18. I am totally gasted, flabber and otherwise. two wonderfully talented people found love. you have all my best wishes for a happy and productive life together.

  19. Dad says he and mom had another fight over Andy after I told her that our tiff at Max's (Always mention Max's by name, please.) was a hit of the evening. Much happiness and bliss to you both. Look as though you're well on your way. Love you both. Dad Blue Gal.

  20. Let it be known throughout Blogsville that I am so very happy about you and Drifglass, so happy to be getting a daughter-in-law and 3 more grandchildren.

  21. Anonymous11:13 PM! We leave you two alone for just a little bit, and look what you've gone and done!!!

    Congrats, you two!

    I feel like the world is a better place already, and nothin's even happened yet!


  22. Ain't love grand??

    What a political of political/new junkies.... a marriage announcement coupled with a debate about Palin & presidential "ass"pirations for 2012.

    Palin is a one way street & she can have it that way on her magical mystery book tour & GOP fundraiser fantasy tours.

    No press, no questions... in her bubble.
    But remember back to those gawdawful debates with her winking & blinking..... & her "shout out".

    Vote for me cause' I'm mav-rick-yyyyy!!!

    She will never cut it in the GOP because she does not walk in lockstep. Plus she is a one time loser already (proven loser).
    She's a good cash cow for the party, but not ready for prime time.

    I mean hell she mixed up North/South Korea.
    She could not even cut the mustard as Guvnah' of Alaska, and now likes to use the title, but could not actually do the job. Now she's palling around w Fox snooze.

    I'll close with a joke:

    What's the difference between a Hockey Mom & a pit bull?

    At some point a pit bull stops whining.

    You two won't run out of things to converse about!

    Best wishes!
