Besides my gorgeous photo (heh), MNspeak has a debate going on today about what good are political blogs. It stems from a PiPress article I missed that mentions my DFLSenate cohort Patrick at MNGOP Watch, and of course, my favorite arch-nemisis.
Are we all just a bunch of hot-winded blowhards making very little noise? Well, yeah. That's why we do it. I don't think I'm going to change the face of the 2006 elections, except maybe for myself.
I don't think many people blog for anything other than a place to store something interesting to them that they might want to see later. The Powerliberal started as a place to store all the political clutter I didn't want to disappear. Should other people want to take a peek at what's rolling around in the attic, that's just icing on the cake.
There's a lot of junk up there, and most of it should probably be tossed in the bin. But you never know which box might have those old Star Wars figures still in the original packaging.
