Lefty fashion plate and right wing hate object Sid Blementhal has a new job: The former Clinton White House aide, who has worked at the New Republic and the New Yorker, is taking over the Washington bureau of Slate.com. WaPo media reporter Howie Kurtz reports that Sid says — surprise, surprise! — that his target will be the Bush administration.

Sid told Kurtz that his focus will be Bush’s ‘radical policies’ and that there will be ‘reporting, investigation, and commentary from people who have experience — some members of what you’d call the shadow government.’
