OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

"A solid grain of salt"

That's how Kaine campaign spokesmodel Delacey Skinner takes the information she reads on Virginia's political blogs in this Pilot article.

Well, I tend to take anything she says, Tucker Martin says, and whomever is the mouthpiece du jour for the Other Candidate is with a big swig of Pepto. That's the only way I can keep the bile at bay.

I took a big long chug after reading this bit from Martin:

Tucker Martin, a spokesman with the Kilgore campaign, said blogs are not vital when making policy decisions. Instead, the campaign views blogs as comparable to “what you’ll hear at a kitchen table.”

I bet we sit at the kiddie table. Without cutlery. And paper plates. Though Martin does say that, "...2005 may be remembered as 'The Year of the Blog.'"

Maybe it will. And if so, I want a real spoon next year.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
