…Since ColinATL asked “Andre, seriously, where are you dude”, I thought I’d come out of the woodwork and post a few random thoughts.
I think that Peach Pundit is pretty fair and balanced for a Republican-leaning blog considering that the Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia has front-page posting privileges. In fact (and here’s a self-acknowledged cheap shot), I’d even go so far as saying that Peach Pundit is more fair and balanced than Blog for Democracy. I mean how often do you seen Republican viewpoints articulated there. Oh sure, it’s a “Democratic” blog, but to quote a friend of mine, Blog for Democracy is the “Rainman” blog of the Democratic Party. Shoot, at least Rainman was likeable.
But I digress.
I only post here on Tuesdays because I don’t want to “drown out other people’s voices”, and also because I spend a large portion of my time working on my blog, Georgia Politics Unfiltered (which I might add has managed to scoop Peach Pundit twice in the last week).
But I think that maybe it might not be such a bad idea to get some more Democrats on here with front-page privileges. I’ve got a few folks in mind (the members of the Georgia Democratic Party’s Complainer Caucus), however, they might resist because well, they wouldn’t want to be seen in cahoots (spelling?) with a bunch of Republicans.
Seriously though, how about the Democratic leaders in the General Assembly…DuBose Porter and Robert Brown. I wouldn’t mind seeing them on Peach Pundit every once in awhile, and it would make for some very interesting debates in the comments area.
And one more thing, Al Sharpton was not at Mark Taylor’s fundraiser last night, and from the Taylor staffers that I spoke to yesterday evening, they were completely surprised when Jesse Jackson showed up.
