Top Referring Blog To Get Prize From RI Senate Campaign
I recieved this interesting e-mail from Carl Sheeler for Senate in Rhode Island. I haven't gone an looked at the campaign site just yet, but as it says below the top personal blog page referring to Sheller's site will get a $500 contribution to support their personalpage or blog. Interesting strategy, at the very least. This tells me that politicos are really geting the importance of our online community and realize that this medium can be effective in spreading their message and creating a buzz. Buzz=votes in a lot of cases. Of course bad buzz(Lieberman-CT) could lose you votes a well. My advise to politicians is to be open and honest. Remember that you can backtrack on what you say and mean on CNN, but if you print it, it's the gospel. Here's the e-mail:

I am the Deputy Campaign Manager with the Sheeler for US Senate (D-RI) campaign; Carl is a marine veteran of the gulf war who has a strong connection with every day Americans – a blend of Paul Wellstone and Russ Feingold. His strong stances on alternative energy; cutting middle class taxes while reforming millionaire and big corporate taxes; funding the NO child left behind (NCLB) federal mandates to alleviate the tax burden on property owners and demanding single payer, national healthcare for all Americans and calling for social and economic equality are what makes his campaign connect with most Americans regardless of party affiliation.
Carl is a fiscally, reasonable, progressive Democrat, the real deal, a working Senator, the peoples’ voice -- a voice for all Americans. Many call Carl’s “of, for and by the people”, a 70’s style democrat referring to his likeability and “building bridges, not walls” views. His Be Patriotic Impeach Bush with a backdrop of our Constitution and Fund OUR Future Not BU$H’s War billboards along I-95 in Rhode Island speak for themselves. Go to Carl’s fantastic site at www.carlsheeler.com to look at the billboards this say’s it all. http://www.carlsheeler.com/ images/billboard1.jpg
