Just got a call from a candidate upset over a blog. It was a reprint of the kind of beneath the radar "newsletters" used to spread negative stuff. I get 'em...Newzjunky gets 'em, I assume all media gets 'em.
I identified it as such, but of course people repeat it as gospel, which it may or not be.
I jokingly said in the intro I am an influential blogger which is of course tongue in cheek. A commenter quickly wrote in that I am an a--hole.
The lesson I am learning is that while blogging is a free form method for sharing observations and views, getting in the middle or even near the edges of the Congressional shootin' match is dangerous.
There is some hard core, scorched earth politics coming our way. Beware.
BY THE WAY- The polls we have taken on the Congressional race are just about up and it appears Dierdre Scozzafava is favored over Darrel Aubertine while her fellow Republican Matt Doheny trails Aubertine. Electability is the issue Scozzafava and Doheny are competing on prior to Wednesday's big vote of the county chairs.
