  •  There is an intersection between blogging (1+ / 0-)

    and activism.  Professional activists do use blogs, as well as email, mass mailing, to get messages out.  But, the two really don't line up with each other.

    I agree with you on many points.  People didn't get out there for Coakley.  People also didn't get out there for Corzine.  I was involved on a volunteer basis in that campaign.  After seeing more than a dozen campaigns, I seen clearly that we would lose.
    Winning elections takes alot of work.

    I guess I am just dubious that blogging is a major factor in the polls that KOS reports.  There are other more important factors at work.  We haven't done a good job at answering the anger voters have at job losses, foreclosures, etc... while bailing out the people who created the problem.

    If we succeed in passing a strong health care bill that puts people's interest first I think we can overcome the narrative that the government is stacked against the "common guy/ gal".

    As hard as it is to believe, Republicans are once again succeeding at the narrative that they are the real populists.  That's the tactic Brown used to win in MA.

    The shortest distance between two points is never a straight line.
