Dem bloggers

Here's one you can participate in. After the hopeful Hackett loss in Ohio last night, a representative of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee posted a plea to bloggers on the popular MyDD blog that included a bit of chest thumping over Hackett's near win in the largely Republican district.

Comments began rolling in, typical at first, but then this one, from Swing State Project's Bob Brigham, appeared:


"My perspective on the OH-02 election is that the DCCC was fucking irrelevant because you were too cowardly to fight early. When Hackett came to you at the beginning, you blew him off. When he won the primary, you looked at the numbers and sat on your ass. When you did come in, it was great -- but way too late.
"I love the ad you did, it would have been nice for people to see it before the final weekend. The DCCC sent some serious people at the end and they kicked ass, but it was too little, too late.
"You fucked up, the blogs stepped up, and EVERYONE saw that your cowardly targeting was total fucking bullshit..."
