Patrick Appoints Blogger to Homeland Security Post

While today's Boston Globe story focused on how newly appointed state Homeland Security chief, Juliette Kayyem is the first Arab-American to hold such a post in the US, I'm more interested to find out if she's the first blogger to have that postion. In addition to being a "Harvard lecturer who frequently appears on television as a terrorism analyst," Kayyem has also been a contributer to TPM Cafe for over a year. For those interested, here is a link to her recent posts.
