It's not easy to imagine -- much less recall -- but VodkaPundit was born eight years ago this very minute.
After spending days examining the blogs I wanted to emulate, and nights prepping my liver for what was to come, the very first words posted on this site were these:
It is the VodkaPundit’s view that the best commentary comes after a lovely adult beverage or three. Just enough, in my grandfather’s wise words, to “loosen the lips and sharpen the wits.” Thus, you’ll find most new postings after 5pm.
The VodkaPundit is squirreled away in his Rocky Mountain hideaway, imbibing the news in safety and secrecy. Just so you know, he’ll be attacking things from the Decadence Caucus of the Heinlein Wing of the small-L libertarian perspective.
And a special thanks to Home Depot, without whom the new office dry bar would still be just a dream.
Since then, the dry bar in the old bachelor condo was replaced by a wet bar in the original VodkaBunker, which was superseded by the new rec room in the lower level of the VodkaManse. And, thanks to my friends and coworkers at PJTV, I'm slightly less safe and secret. But otherwise, that first post has held up pretty well over the years.
Hell, I'm not doing that badly my own damn self. Thanks for reading.
