Congressmen Blogging


There are now at least 11 confirmed Congressmen blogging on either their own sites or as guest authors on different political sites.  Why is this cool?  Most people don’t associate political figures with blogs in a good light, let alone having them blog completely on their own (whether or not the content is proofed before it hits the web is a separate issue).

    PLEASE DON’T BE A PART OF IT.
