Dems Strut Their Stuff in Blogland

New Jersey (and Blue Jersey) blogger DBK (whose regular pit-stop is Blanton's and Ashton's) tipped me off to the new podcasting going on over at Blue Jersey. Their inaugural podcast is here, in which DBK sits down with Congressman Rush Holt (D-NJ) to have a flower-side chat.


For this month's podcast, we sat down with Congressman Rush Holt to hear his thoughts on the upcoming State of the Union, political blogging, NSA domestic spying, rising energy costs, the President's upbringing (hint: it involved immersion in oil) and more.
On Medicare Part D: "I'm not going to accuse them of designing it to fail--although that thought has crossed my mind."
Holt answers the question: "Where are the Democrats?" and shares his thoughts on how to regain a Congressional majority.
Also of interest, Congressman Holt will join BlueJersey after the State of the Union for a live discussion. Plus, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) will be liveblogging the State of the Union at NJ for Democracy, Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) will be liveblogging at WashBlog, and Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) will be liveblogging at MyDD.

Now those are some Dems who know how to work the blogosphere.
