We use what we can find... DUH!!!

Bill Sali has apologized for his remarks, as published in the Idaho Statesman. I'm sure that other Idaho bloggers will be able to provide much better insight, evalation, and commentary on it than I can, so I will leave that up to them (and include links to them here, of course!)...

However, I do want to address one quote by Sali's representative, who stated that Sali's comments took on a life of their own with people "trying to twist it and spin it into something that is horrible. What we have now is bloggers quoting bloggers who are quoting other bloggers.''

Well, yeah, DUH. They are the ones who were discussing it. If it was left up to MSM, then there would be very little awareness of Sali's actions.

If the MSM would like to start covering Sali's voting record and how it represents Idaho, then go for it. If not, maybe the bloggers will have to take on THAT responsibility as well.

MSM needs to lead, follow or just get out of the way... the public still needs to be informed.
