From Paul Bass in the New Haven Independent:
Gerstein said the Lamont crew "did a brilliant job of using technology to build a support base and organize a campaign" in the primary. The campaign benefited from its own and a nationwide crop of independent blogs, from e-mail fund-raising and volunteer-drafting efforts, as well as from a general Internet buzz that catapulted a political unknown into a contender against an internationally recognized three-term incumbent.Damn.
"Ten years from now it will probably be looked at as a model for how campaigns will be run," Gerstein predicted. Soon, he said, voters will receive get-out-to-the-polls text messages on their cell phones on election day.
I was getting all set to be riled up, ready to respond to the inevitable slagging that Dan was gonna give us, and here he goes saying something like that.
What's a blogger with a bad attitude to do?
OK Dan, you get a pass today.
Don't get used to it. I'm sure you'll say something really stupid, I'll get pissed off and slam you for it, and balance will be restored to the universe.
The way it ought to be.
