Politics: The Bachmann Record--Now Online, For Free!

Jeez-zoo! Getting that new web page up was like giving birth... But it's up! It's up, boys and girls! The first version is now on line, today.

So it's okay to start plugging it here: "The Bachmann Record" web page. A string of issue briefs, bullet-proof sourcing and citation of Congressional candidate Michele Bachmann on all sorts of issues.

The first four issue briefs are Bachmann on: Taxes, Education, Contributors, and Teaching Evolution and Creationism in our public schools.

And get a load of that portrait of Michele, which we commissioned especially from a human artist! Isn't that fantastic? (I'll put the link at the bottom of this article so you can see it.) I'll bet even she will be pleased with that!

We hope it will be useful to voters throughout the Sixth District. "The Bachmann Record" web site is and will be everything that this site is not: serious, well-documented, sans the tasteless and infantile humor. Gravitas, a-plenty!

There will be nothing on the page to slow down folks who are looking for hard information and sources on the candidate. So there will be no "Opinion" articles mixed in with the issue briefs; no contentious and undocumented blog exchanges. Any opinion that does appear will published news and op-eds on Bachmann, and these will be shoved off to their own web page so they don't get in the way of the issue briefs.

Here is the web site:

This is what the DFL should have been doing for the past four months, or longer. But if I were to put money on either Bush catching Osama or the DFL having their shit together on a campaign, I'd put my money on Bush.

Yeah. I'm not a DFLer, even though I'm certainly a liberal. They don't have their shit togethah.
Actually, all political parties--DFL, GOP, IP, whatevah--should maintain "fact file" web pages for constituents on opposition candidates--with citations, documented stuff, not just rhetoric--and keep those page up and running during terms of office.
That way the voters would at least be able to choose the lesser among evils.

You'd think this is the sort of project that would interest the newspapers and their journalists. But since it involves actual research and an attention span of more than twenty minutes, it probably holds little or no appeal for them.
