Blog-Fu Very Big Legend
You're going to want to go read BVBL (which originally stood for Blog-Fu: Vendetta By Law! - probably a sketchy translation of some Chinese phrase).
I had resolved to ignore politics until late September, but something compels me to jump in now:
Could the Democrats have possibly ended up with a worse candidate than Judy Feder to run against Frank Wolf? Which demographic in the 10th District was she supposed to win over, the highly-sought, "tax me now" Drooling Nitwit swing voter?
Gas prices are hurting us all, and, unless we act now, itâ€™s only going to get worse.
Our current congressman had many chances to avert this crisis, but instead he went along with the Bush administration and the oil companies at every turn.
What does "acting now" mean for Judy Feder? Apart from voting for Judy Feder, it's extremely hard to say - but I can tell you what it does NOT mean: A google search of her Web site - which is, if nothing else, focused on the topic of energy - returns the following results:
"drill" - 0 results
"refineries - 0 results
"refinery" - 1 result (not in the context one might expect, though)
"nuclear" - 0 results
"big oil" - 180 results
This is not to imply it's wrong to focus on where she sees the core of the problem: the oil companies. But for someone who positions herself as a "scholar" you might expect at least a barely well-rounded discussion of the issue.
Reading Judy Feder's Web site is an experience of the deja vu variety: I think what it reminds me of are Zap comics circa 1973. But before you jump to any conclusions, such as "this woman is not so bright," remember that she's a....PROFESSOR!! (You say that with the same flourish as the punchline of the joke "the Aristrocrats.")
BVBL has a huge jump on everyone else I know of in covering the Feder spectacle, so be sure to visit him frequently thoughout the campaign - such as it is - season.
