Say what you will able to the Cagle, Kemp, Reed, and Black campaigns, but know this — Joel McElhannon appears to get blogs. While that is no indicator of the ability to win elections, it is noticeable to this blogger than within fifteen minutes of ever putting up anything on either the Lt. Gov.’s race or the Ag Commissioner’s race, the Cagle and Kemp supporters come out in force to praise their guys and beat the hell out of the opponents. Besides having zealous supporters, many of whom are cross overs supporting both Cagle and Kemp with equal zeal, these candidates also employ Joel McElhannon. I feel safe in saying that the zealous commentariat at Peach Pundit would not be what it is, but for a little encouragement from Joel. While there has been some criticism that Joel does not understand grassroots building, I think we can rest assured that he fully understands netroots.
