Whether its demanding her MSG back on cable; congratulating the Syracuse Orangemen on their undefeated season, changing water levels, saving prisons, fighting for our schools or tapping a maple tree, nobody hypes themself more on the Internet than Senator Ritchie.
Aided by her media spinmeisters including former Journal editor Jim Reagen, the Senator keeps the message flowing as a rate that makes me look like a neophyte with my little blog.
Last year old media spent a lot of time going after me through surrogates about bypassing the media gatekeepers through my Internet ramblings. The Senator has taken direct access to the public to a new level and received no criticism....Nor should she....
I like reading about what she is doing, where she is going and while I know a lot of it is hype, I think I'm smart enough to figure it all out.
Patti Ritchie is the North Country's first Facebook Senator.
