The Interweb for Politicians 101

If you are going to post flattering comments about yourself on the web, don't use a fake name.

I heartily encourage politicians to use web forums and message boards to talk with their constituents. I've been on several boards where local elected officials do make appearances and it is great; it's one of the truly beneficial things about the internet. But they do it under their own names so everybody knows it. A fake name? Not terribly smart.

There is one Republican I wouldn't vote for. Not so much because he used a cheezy manouver, but because he couldn't bring himself to admit it was cheezy and instead took the low road.

Since this guy seems to prefer politics ala Democrat...he should change parties or lose the next election to one.
