Blog the County

I had been kicking this idea around for a few days, and when I checked out the guys at JoinCross today, and I just had to suggest it. Ron Ingraham needs to start a political blog. If you want to get an idea of what im checking out check out Rich Miller's Capitol Fax blog. This is all thats not fit to print, but is still damn fun to read.
New media director Ernesto Burden says the blog, called Hall Monitor, features "an inside perspective on statehouse happenings, including scuttlebutt that may never see the pages of the newspaper but will be a great resource and a heck of a lot of fun for political junkies, news lovers, and probably the legislators themselves."

Says Allen: "There are countless things that members of the press talk about informally with lawmakers, lobbyists, and state officials, and it never gets communicated to our readers. With the blog, I am excited by the opportunity to let them in on the conversation."
Let's hear what you all have to say about this idea. And, Ron if you're out there PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do it, you're the reason I wake up early on Sundays.
