It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Especially when you've just chatted with Eric Boehlert over at John Amato's site, Crooks and Liars (who linked to me today, so a tip o' the tinfoil hat to Mike Finn).
Eric just published a new book entitled, Bloggers on the Bus, which is a followup of sorts to Robert Crouse's Boys on the Bus. It picks up where Crouse left off in the mid seventies and Boehlert offers an interesting analysis of not only how technology shapes campaign strategies but also goes into the enormous effect that the netroots, or blogosphere, had on the 2008 presidential campaign.
Yes, my fellow pajama-wearing, Cheetos-crunching losers: We helped change political history by helping to elect, pushing back against the lies and spin and to clarify the positions of our nation's first African American president. Mr. Boehlert is saying you can give eachother high fives and terrorist fist jabs for a job well done.
So if you have a few bucks to spare, amble on over to Amazon.com and check out Eric's book, which, largely thanks to us (again), is debuting at #2069, which isn't bad considering that Amazon has a couple of million ranked book titles. I bought one. Why don't you?
