Internet! Create A Dave Weigel Wikipedia Page!

My friend and colleague Dave Weigel — the premiere chronicler of the contemporary American conservative movement — appears to have had a freakout over the fact that he has no Wikipedia entry. (Or, more precisely, that he had one mysteriously taken down shortly after it was created — a creation also shrouded in third-party mystery.) From my perspective, it’s just not worth it. The page that people created for me has a couple minor inaccuracies and contextual flaws, as well as an extremely unflattering picture.  They’re imperceptible to the billions of people on the planet who aren’t me; but I’m me, dammit, and it’s kind of burdensome. But I have acquired the perception that it’s poor internetiquette to edit your own Wikipedia page, so I let it go. Anyway, for what it’s worth, it’s not worth it.

But Weigel disagrees, and his well-being is important to me, both as his friend and his officemate. So, Wiki-quipped internet: it is up to you to do this thing for Dave Weigel, a/k/a Mr. Win-The-Thread-On-These-Hoes. The Delaware Destroyer has given you so so much. If it weren’t for him, you would not have the term “Teabagger” in a political context. Some reporters win the morning; others win the afternoon. Dave Weigel has won 2009. A Wikipedia page ought to memorialize that feat. Make it so.
