Here is something funny to mull over while you chew on that post below.
The Washington State Democrats (the elected chair and I assume the staff he hired) don't like the suggestion for a blog or any other cluetrain type stuff.
Wes Beal would be the lead staff on any techie stuff like that, as technical director of the state party.
Here is Wes Beal's blog. He raises money through ActBlue, something the state party doesn't do on their own site.
Here is his post about getting the job with the party. Strangely the posts sort of peter out after that. Maybe there is a blogging kibosh I don't know about up there?
