Mickey Kaus to Run for Senate?

It’s one way to boost traffic: Slate political blogger Mickey Kaus has taken out papers to challenge California Senator Barbara Boxer. Kaus is a Democrat but is notably more conservative than Boxer on several issues—he opposes immigration with amnesty, affirmative action, and labor unions. “We'll see what happens,” Kaus blogged Tuesday. “The basic idea would be to argue, as a Democrat, against the party's dogma on several major issues.” Kaus added that “several issues, including my role at Slate, are still to be resolved.” Running for California office worked for Arianna Huffington; why not Mickey too?
