I’m not taking Woods’s place. I don’t want to take Woods’ place and I can’t take Woods’ place.
My role has always been armchair analyst and that’s not going to change. If it seems like I’ve stepped up over at Pith, that’s only temporary until they figure out what they’re doing, because I’m a sentimental fool who cares about Pith as an institution and wants to see it remain.
But anyway, that was more than I intended to say. I’m flattered anyone would even suggest I was stepping in to take over Woods’s mantle, but let’s be real. I can’t do what he did so well. Sitting at the Statehouse is his job.
Making snarky comments about politicians is my hobby.
There’s a world of difference between the two.
