Proud Liberal on CNN

Proud Liberal was mentioned today on CNN's Inside Politics during the Inside the Blogs Segment. Here is part of the transcript,

"ABBI TATTON, CNN POLITICAL REPORTER: Now, one Republican senator who has vowed to vote no on that vote when it comes down is South Dakota's John Thune. The Republican senator is going to do this protest vote. He says linked to the fact that the likely closure of Ellsworth Air Base in South Dakota, and issue of great importance to South Dakota. The blogging community out there is very strong, very vocal. They played a big part blogging in the election last year.

We have a look at what some of them are saying. Proud liberal, this is Trent (ph), a Democrat out there, saying that Thune is in a no win situation on this vote. That if he reverses course and actually does vote for Bolton, he'll be open to criticism that he's continuing to tow the party line, even with Ellsworth on the chopping block. If however, he votes against Bolton, then he'll be labeled an obstructionist, the most detested form of political life in South Dakota"

I guess they finally reached the bottom of the barrel and got around to reading my little blog. I guess this is my 10 seconds of fame. What a ride!

Hi Trent. Congrats on your mention on CNN. Is this base closing the type of thing that could get Thune defeated in 2010?

Thomas,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm not the base closure in and of itself will be enough to get Thune defeated in 2010, but when taken in combination with the other problems he's already had, like struggling to get funding for water projects etc., it sure won't help.
