Ben Smith of Politico Tires of Twitter – Prefers Left Wing Private JournoList Listserv

Posted on

Left Wing blogger Ben Smith over at Politico is whining because George Stephanopoulos over at ABC is interviewing Senator John McCain on Twitter.

Anyone else getting a little sick of Twitter-as-intriguing-and-shiny-new-toy?

Guess Smith prefers JournoList where he obtains his “talking points.”

And, which is NOT on a public timeline.

Flap hypothesizes that someone is thinking Mike Ditka would make a good GOP candidate for the now open Barack Obama Illinois Senate seat.

Geraghty worries about a celebrity ad being run against Ditka and frets about Caroline Kennedy, Chris Matthews and/or Jerry Springer in the Senate.

Flap warns that celebrity candidates have not been so good lately (well since, Reagan who was a quasi celebrity, anyway). Look at Al Franken, Jesse Ventura, Arianna Huffington and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The real pause is when they win the election and have to govern – sometimes disastrously.
