A quick meta blog, because it's been way too long since I updated the blogroll on your right. There's getting to be too many to go one by one, so I'll walk you through the changes:

John Deeth's content improves steadily day by day. If the blogosphere has a rising star right now, he's it on the left, and MM is on the right.

This is probably going to sound biased, but if you want to hear things from the Blouin or Culver point of view, check out Drew Miller and Chris Woods, respectively. Within the next few days they'll probably tell you to come to me for the Fallon side of things, but my ad makes that somewhat obvious.

Iowa Political Watch is a new find, thanks to MM for pointing it out. They have a very intriguing style which almost seems out of place in the blog world...the depth of their content is unusual. Normally, when I read a blog it's because I've got a few minutes to spare at work, IPW isn't something I can read that way.

I'd been reading Iowa Geek on and off and on level for a while. Good stuff, a fair mix of personal and politics.

Side Notes and Detours is often entertaining. I apolgize for incorrectly comparing it to Random Mentality, which is now defunct.

I don't know what to call this blog anymore, so I guess I'll stick with Bob Again. She's got great insight on issues at times, but this is the third prolonged absence/strange return and rebuild in a few months. I don't know what's going on and won't speculate.

Remember Iowa Ramblings? New addition DemIowa is kind of on that pace. Tremendous content, inconsitent delivery.

That's all for tonight...after this week, I'm going back to my couch, turning off my cell phone, and closing out the world for a while.

I think you're probably right about me being a good place to hear positive news on Culver. What I can tell you is that I won't be pushing any kind of Blouin line--he's not a Democrat I want for governor.

With regards to the Culver POV, I can't help it--or at least that's what it seems like to me. He's the candidate I've been able to actively get behind. I can't say that I'm ready to endorse him. But I guess you can say I'm a Culver-ite.

Thanks for the pat on the back - I finally found my niche in the blogosphere and it only took me three years (that's 142 in dog years). It's all about focus, John, focus...

Though the occasional personal junk will still slip though just to put a human face on it.

How was the phone bank?

We're having a good level of success recently. I won't go too far into specifics, but the level of support we've been seeing has been encouraging.

Side Notes may be in the style of RM, but it's not RM. If you could, I'd appreciate the clarification - RM was taken offline due to the wisdom of removing the blog while in the middle of a job search.

Be very careful when Mark Warner comes to visit Dems in Iowa. His minion Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) recently skipped a vote on punishing employers of illegal aliens. The feudalist Moran/Warner faction of the Virginia Democratic party seeks to avoid at all costs punishing Wal-Mart for employing illegal alien work crews.

Ask Mark Warner where he stands on Republican legislation to reduce penalties for employing illegal aliens. Ask him whether or not he approves of his close ally Rep. Jim Moran skipping a vote on this issue.

If Warner hears people in Iowa complaining about the Moran/Warner feudalist agenda (employ illegal aliens as serfs) then maybe he will change the way he and boss Moran run things in Virginia.
