Ana Marie Cox was the original "wonkette" -- a saucy political gossip blog which is part of the GawkerMedia.com stable. But Cox left Gawker and "wonkette" is now written by two other people.

HER SELF DESCRIPTION IS ON HER PROMOTIONAL WEBSITE:

"ANA MARIE COX had a long, disastrous career in mainstream media before being forced into the shallow waters of the blogosphere. An editor at Mother Jones, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and The American Prospect, her poor people skills made her unpopular, while her sarcasm drove people away. Internet journalism, with its higher tolerance for misfits, provided an early home—she is a survivor of Suck.com, Feedmag.com and Inside.com. She was discovered at a drugstore by Nick Denton, who made her Wonkette and is now at work on her next book, an anthropological study of young conservatives. Her husband Chris Lehmann is remarkably well-liked and an editor at CQ Weekly."
