Extra Wankery


Still, my verdict is to let Armstrong free with a slap on the wrist. Joe Trippi's hiring of Armstrong because of was one of the most-reported anecdotes of the primary season. What's new is Teachout's revelation that the Dean campaign hired Armstrong because they wanted him to give them good blog, not because they wanted his sage political advice. But Armstrong didn't know that, so it's tough to be too hard on him for it.

Armstrong had a blog. He got hired by the Dean campaign. He stopped blogging. For that he deserves a "slap on the wrist"?

...Gilliard has more.
