This was almost inevitable after the blowup at the ODP Holiday Party. Now what would have been the best way to handle such a thing? Show up for what is becoming standard practice for Ohio politicians: Sit down with Meet The Bloggers. Maybe that would have been surrenduring in Sherrod’s eyes. They cancelled. The excuse given is of course due to Tim Russo being there. BFD! (Sorry George, but that does stand for something else).
Here is audio of the voicemail that George posted…see what you think:
Fellow bloggers are mostly saying that this is a blown opportunity and I have to agree strongly. I will go one further and say that this is also pathetic and stupid, reinforcing comments made to me previous that the Brown campaign was being run by rank amateurs. This move is complete bullshit and hopefully will resonate across the national blogosphere and even get some coverage in traditional media. But hey, at least he still has a table for one.
And now we have Buckeye Poltics suddenly down…can’t help but to think that the two are related. Stay tuned.
