We’re not accustomed to posting at midnight on a Friday, but we couldn’t resist after scagmajor passed along this nugget from the Washington Times. John McCain, eager to broaden his reach, apparently isn’t courting the Buzz Bissinger vote. To wit:
Those who follow blogging said the McCain campaign will have to pick and choose whom to invite to conference calls, arguing that some sites won’t treat Mr. McCain fairly.
“I don’t think the people at DailyKos are going to treat John McCain mercifully, but I think the fact that people get their question heard makes them dial it back a bit,” said Soren Dayton, a blogger who worked briefly for the McCain campaign and now works at a public affairs company, New Media Strategies.
Going forward, Mr. Hynes said, the campaign would like to have Mr. McCain talk to sports bloggers, too, as a way to “humanize John McCain as something other than a carbon-copy politician running for office, delivering talking points.”
Every presidential candidate interviewed on RandBall gets a free T-shirt. Enticed, sir?
