Dems on blogs

The DNC on blogs:

At the Democratic National Committee (DNC), chairman Howard Dean, who pioneered the use of the Internet to raise funds for his 2004 presidential campaign, has set up an Internet Department to get his message out to the blogs.

"Sometimes there are stories that don't fit with our larger, overall national media strategy that we send out to encourage and motivate and engage people in the blogosphere," says DNC spokesman Josh Earnest.

Translation: We try to put on a sane face for our national advertising to win over middle America voters. But then we send what we really believe to the blogs, like how Israel is a terrorist state, Bush stole the election, and the Iraq war is being waged for Halliburton profits.
