An Email Faux-Pas
My enthusiasm for Mark Warner running for the Senate is dampened just a bit on the manner in which he made the announcement.
Basically, he leaked to the mainstream media that he would be emailing his supporters at 9am today to let them know he’s running.
What the fuck is that? If you’re letting the world know you’re announcing, and will be doing so in an email, what’s the point in doing the email? Why not stick to a standard press release, since by the time the email hits everyone will have known already anyway?
That said, I look forward to Virginia turning just a little bit bluer in 2008. And maybe with Warner’s reverse coattails, we might just win it’s electoral votes, too!
