With the valuable Glenn Reynolds and Jonah Goldberg endorsements in hand, Mickey Kaus’ bid for a Democratic Party primary win is looking more solid than ever.

That said, I’m going to go counter-counterintuitive here and say that if some weird process put Mickey Kaus in the United States Senate, he’d wind up being someone who neither Reynolds nor Goldberg like very much. It’s not really clear to me what votes Kaus would have cast differently from Boxer or what difference it would have made. And of course like all politicians if he were actually in office he would face strong incentives to act like a conventional politician rather than like a contrarian blogger.
