The Politicker tries, as a matter of policy, to ignore the subject of blogging, on the theory that our readers are interested politics, not blogs.
The other night, though, New Yorkers for Parks invited a bunch of bloggers to “live-blog” their Mayoral candidates’ forum, held in a big, reasonably crowded, and well-airconditioned space at NYU that gave the sense of a real event on a real campaign.
Anyway, I’m not sure who spent that evening hitting “refresh” on the live blogs, and The Politicker’s notebook doesn’t get wireless. But at least one blogger, Emily Farris, got something out of the evening:
“I have a huge crush on City Council Speaker Gifford Miller and will probably vote for him in the Democratic Mayoral Primary because of it. But the reasons I have a crush on him are the same reasons I think he’d make a decent mayor (except for the cute way he talks like he has a piece of hard candy in his mouth and that he’s just really attractive).
“God, he’s so hot when he gets snarky with the other candidates!”
