McCain Website Launches New Blog « The Washington Independent
The McCain campaign has unveiled a new blog, dubbed "The McCain Report," that will allow supporters, reporters and bloggers to interact with the campaign. According to the campaign Website:
The goal of this project is pretty straightforward: to provide journalists and bloggers with a little more insight into what’s going on over here, to provide quotes and information you won’t be able to get anywhere else, and to serve as a point of contact for online media.
From the campaign’s email announcement:
"Today our campaign launched an innovative blog that will provide voters across the country a unique vehicle to keep in touch with the campaign. The blog will offer a fresh perspective and will include quotes, the candidate’s schedule and photos not available anywhere else.
"As a part of our continual effort to reach voters, allow unprecedented access and bring greater transparency to American politics, our blog ‘The McCain Report’ will provide a sounding board for all. Please visit our web site at www.johnmccain.com/mccainreport and get in touch with our campaign as we move toward success in November."
The blog currently features a photo of the Arizona senator holding what appears to be a young alligator — or is it a caiman — on a trip to the Everglades in 2004. Conveniently, the debut of the blog coincides with another visit to the Everglades earlier this afternoon.
