Morning Whammy: Guess Who’s Back?

Major sigh of relief here at FishbowlDC. Praise Jesus, Allah, Buddha or whoever made this happen.

“Don’t call it a comeback,” pleaded FakeJimVandehei in a late night tweet. And with that, at about 11:14 p.m. he (we’re presuming it’s a he) added, “The Obama campaign’s willingness to flout POLITICO is yet another sign of an arrogant operation that’s out-of-touch with political reality.”

Fake Jim, who disappeared from Twitter without a trace in July, explained to FishbowlDC, “For a while there I thought maybe I’d exhausted the satirical material I had to work with. I quickly realized that was completely false.”

He’s starting from scratch. So far he has two followers and we’re one of them. He’s following 17 people, mostly Politico reporters such as Ben Smith, Jake Sherman, Molly Ball and Alex Isenstadt. But in the mix is also HuffPost‘s Sam Stein and Tribune‘s Mike Memoli.

There you have it. Most definitely a comeback.
