Beware the Bloggers

There is something rather disheartening about a political machine so frightened of "outsiders" that it doesn't seem to occur to them that maybe committed Democrats might be useful to have around.

So, screw'em. All good Philadelphians should support Anne Dicker. You can check her out tonight at the Philly for Change Meetup tonight, along with other candidates I believe including Paul Lang, Joe Sestak and Tony Payton Jr.

Tony Payton has a great story. He's in his 20s. He filed to run. The party tried to knock him off the ballot by filing a challenge, so Payton issued a retaliatory challenge. He stayed on the ballot, and the party candidate got knocked off. Oops.
