Who is CheChe?

The blogosphere is abuzz with the question, "Who is CheChe?" Everyone from Allahpundit at Hot Air to the Cornerites to the Protein Wisdomheads is trying to figure out the answer to this burning question.

Briefly, "CheChe" is the nom de blog of someone who apparently posts fairly regularly at Daily Kos. His posts always take the same form: stories about him trying to comfort his daughter who doesn't understand why the evil Republicans do the things they do. Here's today's post:

I don't think I've ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago. She just couldn't understand why the President would be going to Iraq when so many things are wrong in this country. "Doesn’t Mr. Bush care about us anymore?" she asked pitifully.

I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the President seems to be abandoning his country. "Honey, I think his boss, Mr. Rove, sent Mr. Bush out of the country in order to keep himself out of the newspapers. You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Mr. Bush’s trip ahead of time just in case...”

I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult - the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much. I think my daughter could tell something was wrong. I found myself at such a loss for words - nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore. I finally had to admit, "Honey, I just don't know - I don't know what's going on in this country anymore..."

When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, "Daddy" she said, "why are the Republicans doing this to the country?" Well, that was it for me: I finally fell apart. She just fell into my arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes.

For once she had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it's too much, but seeing the strength in my young daughter's voice helped me to get through.

Here's CheChe's May 11 post:

I don't think I've ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did a moment ago. She just couldn't understand why the President would be spying on everyone. "Even my Grandma?" she asked pitifully.

I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why the President has ordered a group of spies to collect information on every American. "And yes honey, even Grandma", I was forced to say.

There's more from April 27 and April 19, but you get the idea.

Until today, none of the KosKids caught on (and their sympathetic responses to being unknowingly punked are hysterical) , but a commenter named Wisper busted CheChe early this morning. So now the question is: Who is CheChe?

Early money was on Greg Gutfeld, and it really does sound like something he'd write. But a source with absolute moral authority tells me it ain't Gutfeld. (Although said source could be tweaking me.) Whoever it is does a good Gutfeld - maybe even as good as mine, which vaguely pisses me off.

More to follow...
