They both asked a good many questions, which revealed both their interest and their newness to blogs. It’s good to know that the Dem party chair has time to connect to bloggers who support progressive issues, while in Sandpoint the GOP party chair is presiding over a civil war.
I can’t find a link, but Heath Druzin of the Statesman reported Saturday that at the Republican Convention reception
there was a very public display of … friction … Gov. Butch Otter put his hand on fellow Republican Norm[!] Semanko’s shoulder, leaned in, and with dramatic gestures, launched into what appeared to be a less-than-friendly conversation.Gov. Otter, of course, supporting Kirk Sullivan and opposing Norm’s effort to become chairman. Then there was this quote from Gov. Otter.
I’m not going to try to predict what another person can’t do, but I can see what Kirk has done.Praise for Sullivan, but also a bit of “I don’t think Norm can do it,” don’t ‘cha think?
