The Puddle Pirate goes big time?

A nice AP reporter e-mailed me yesterday and wanted to discuss political blogs in Ohio. She’d talked with some liberals, and needed a conservative for balance. You might reasonably think that my pithy observations and dry wit reeled her in, but I suspect my looks had something to do with it. Being the shy, retiring type, I reluctantly passed on the vast knowledge and expertise I’ve gleaned from my three months of blogging. I’m sure she’ll have plenty for her story.
In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to reading her story. I’ve been meaning to add some local flavor around here. Perhaps I can find some worthy sparring partners in the area.

    Thanks Puddle Pirate, it was definitely your cape that prompted my call. 😉 If anyone else is reading and has comments on Ohio politics and blogs, bring ’em on. Specifically, I’m interested in whether blogs are an effective political tool and whether Ohio candidates and political parties using them effectively? Thanks!

    I knew it … the cape’s a chick magnet!
    When your article gets published, it’ll be prominently linked here. I’m interested in what it’ll turn up.
