It doesn't get more self-referential than this.
I guess it doesn't hurt to push your magazine article on your own blog. People from all political persuasions have done this time and again. I'm not meaning to pick on Markos particularly because of his politics - we are members of the same party, after all. I just find the self-referencing extremely amusing, especially considering that he's taking a part of his own article and blogging about it.
