Eye On Boise

One does, one doesn’t

At their press conferences yesterday, both Republican Jim Risch and Democrat Larry LaRocco were asked if they read blogs and if they pay attention to the comments posted on them. Risch’s answer: “No and no.” Though he did say, “I do, however, have to tell you that from time to time friends of mine will put the printouts in front of me. Some are amusing, some are not so amusing. Blogs are a lot like letters to the editor, they’re people’s own personal opinions.” LaRocco’s answer: “I read blogs. Blogs are important. Let me remind you that (U.S. Sen.) Jim Webb in Virginia raised 60 percent of his funds on the Internet. It’s an attempt to democratize what’s going on in America. It’s a very interesting phenomenon in the United States right now.”
