Campaign Costs

How much does a political campaign cost? Is there another way?


Marion County is going after rightwing terrorists here at home.


I'm just hoping that whatever technology we're using to spear this comet isn't drawn from the disastrous "star wars defense" project.

My Humble Opinion

If I'd received the letter from (Mar)Kos, I would have considered it a threat. I do not agree with his assessment of Carol Darr's letter as "bizarre." Rather, I see her as concerned. Nor do I feel that she expressed "anger" in her letter. Basically, I think he's just jumping off the tracks on this one.

(I actually think IPDI's original comments to the FCC make a lot of sense. Much more sense than Kos's attempt at rebuttal. The truth is that some bloggers do to be allowed to be everything, without regulation, which is ridiculous. This isn't a kid's game. This is where the Big Boys play. If some bloggers want to play on that field, they have to follow the same rules.)

(I'm probably wrong. I usually am about these "points of law" types of thing. I'm probably basing too much of my opinion on my perception of Markos's arrogance and rudeness and my perception of Darr's response as thoughtful and concerned.)


Please. Whatever you do, make sure you're raped in the right place.

I wonder if you need to see Markos' reaction as part of a greater whole, considering his recent statements regarding feminism and (related, I think) his "moral support" post about accompanying his wife as SHE took their kid for his shots.

To be honest, I almost never read the Kos site, so while I read about the feminism kerfuffle on other sites, I'm unaware of other recent history.

What did I miss?
