"We've had a good run these past three years, but you can't be the Nastiest Woman In Indiana Politics forever without some long-term effect on your soul. It was time for a change, and I'll admit that motherhood has made it substantially more difficult to be mean. When a four-month-old cracks a legitimate, non-gassy smile and starts cooing at you, it's hard not to smile back.
I want to thank you for helping make TDW the strange little phenomenon it has become over the past few years. I've had a lot of fun, and I think that amid the jokes and snark, maybe we've done a few decent things. (Yes, Glenn Murphy, I'm talking about you and your predatory ways.)

But all good things must come to an end -- or at least be passed along to someone else."

-- Indiana political blog Taking Down Words's blogmistress (and former Bilerico contributor) Jen Wagner signing off. Jen has taken a new job as gubernatorial candidate Jim Schellinger's Communications Director. A few of us have been asked to keep the blog going in her absence.
