Impact of our Blog

Later this month we will celebrate our 3 month blog-iversery. Thanks to everyone who reads or contributes to this blog. It's clear we are not only covering this years election, but also having an impact.

In the next few days you will be able to know more about the writers here, as we begin to unveil our identity in the Washington Post.

Many of the candidates running and their staffs tune in here also. Often times when we bash one of them the issue is corrected almost immediately. For example, when our picture of Brian Moran went up from his site last week, within 2 days it was replaced with a much more flattering one. When we pointed out Dave Marsden had his endorsements listed with the wrong offices, the page was down the next morning, and up corrected soon thereafter. When we pointed our Jim Hyland's attacks were very strong for this point in the campaign, they were replaced with a much more positive message. Hey- we should be getting paid for this!

Also after having his pants attacked David Bulova has stopped wearing any.... (just kidding!)

We also brought you Gary Reese's conceding the primary two days in advance.

Thank You to everyone who has helped out with this project!

Dry throat is an idiot. Almost as stupid as Blue Dog. They are the biggest pests on the internet. Blue dog is the worst though. He thinks he's so big because the Republicans feed him info. He's such a tool of the GOP.

I read on Tim Kaine's site about the overwhelming ego of the people who posted this blog. It was very funny. (More funny, however, was that Kaine's blogger used an image written in French-a page from John Kerry maybe?, I digress) - NOTHING NLS seems to take credit for happened because of NLS.

I agree, I have been visiting many of the candidate sites for more than two months. Jim Hyland for instance has not changed any of his material re: his opponent. NLS has gone crazy.

Oh please, the day NLS posted that Jim Hyland took down the "STEVE SHANNON HAS FAILED US" in all caps down from the front page.

Hey, 10:49 Anon.

Just FYI, the site you were at isn't affiliated with Tim Kaine. You were at, which is a grassroots organization- none of them work for or are affliliated with Kaine's campaign.

Other than that, you're right, it was hilarious!

My feelings are hurt. :(

Yes, i'm sure staffs are altering strategy as a result of blog posts. I'll be laughing at that for weeks. Try and deflate your ego.

NLS, you are too much. Do you really think this site has an impact apart from the 8 people who read it regularly? Come on, get your ego in check.
