Meghan the Blogger

04 Nov

Blogs and politics are a strange decoction. They have become the campaign tool du jour. But done right, and from the right angle (pun not intended!) they do give us slices of candidate that the media (liberal, bellicose or otherwise) don’t don’t have time to cover. But apart form pundit blogs, journalist blogs and campaign blogs a daughter blog can strike a different note. At Meghan McCain’s blog, you get to see what the dad looks like doing voice-overs.

You also get to see people carrying the portable podium, looking jet lagged,  the tete-a-tete with Joe the Plumber, this election’s everyman, and even this other Joe.

Eventually, blogs work because they give an inside view, not whetted by legal and PR. Not fed through the talking points machine.
