It’s never quite clear to me how much overlap various blogs have with each other. So this is a summary of something I first learned about from Scripting News.
Tara Sue is running for Congress. She’s running against Howard Coble, who is both a demagogue (why is the single most visible item on his site that he wants to award a medal to the passengers of United Flight 93? Surely that’s not the most important piece of news he can offer his constituents) and
a fan of the RIAA (you can also read a response to that column here.
North Carolina is a very different place from Silicon Valley and it’s fascinating that they’re having these arguments there too).
This is, by itself, of little note.
It’s all kind of interesting.
I’m sending a $25 check. Not because I think she’ll win (the incumbent is a Republican who’s so entrenched into his ridiculously gerrymandered district that the Democrats don’t even bother running an opponent), but because, ultimately, the money’s for a good cause. If she can mount a good campaign, if she can cause Coble a few moment’s worry, then I think everyone in Congress will worry (because, if Coble’s vulnerable to this sort of challenge, then everyone in Congress is vulnerable to this sort of challenge).
How much did you send Tara Sue’s campaign?
