Globe skeptic joins Globe

It seems like just yesterday that Sasha Issenberg, author of The Sushi Economy, was telling Boston magazine readers why the Globe would struggle to cover the 2008 presidential race.

As I noted at the time, Issenberg's assessment seemed overly pessimistic and--dare I say it?--somewhat ill-informed. Imagine my surprise, then, when I picked up today's Globe and found an A1 article co-authored by Marcella Bombardieri and....Sasha Issenberg!

Issenberg's subject isn't the Globe, however. (It's not sushi, either.) Instead, he and Bombardieri are writing about how the various US Senators running for president handled the Petraeus/Crocker hearings.

From the outside, there's an elegant chutzpah to Issenberg's move: tell Boston that the Globe needs more help covering the '08 race, then get yourself hired to provide said help.

Well played, Sasha.
