Democratic Communication

I have word that the new Maine Democratic Party Website will go live at 7:00 tonight. Judging from these comments, this is a highly anticipated event.

If you don't think that Republicans in Maine are using the internet more effectively at the moment, check out the Google Page Rank (a measure of the popularity and value of websites) of the respective state party sites. Republicans 5, Democrats 2.

[Update] The website looks nice, and this (PDF file) is a great bit on Senator Davis. I could have done without the cartoon though. It's not particularly funny and in a time when we're in the majority, it seems petty.

The real innovation is the blog, which in less than a day of existence already has its first troll. They might want to look into moderating the comments.

Also, it could use a better name than just "blog". I think "The Maine Democrat" has a nice ring to it. Feel free to make your own suggestion.

Visit the new Maine Politics.


How about "The Donkey"?

Yeah, Blog is just too bleh. But it's encouraging that they have one!

The first troll says she's gone for now, (I must say that was way too easy) but the blog, whatever it's to be called, is really only a reprinting service for Maine newspapers. Please tell me what I/we can do to make it better. Someone? Anyone?
