"A solid grain of salt"
Friday, October 28, 2005 :::
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.
