I Hope This Doesn’t Get Blocked at Work

Then again, maybe I ought to hope it does… this is gonna kill my ability to get any work done! I got a little more productive at work when DKos got banned by the company filters. On that front, maybe we could keep the profanity to a voluntary minimum? Profanity seems to be one of the factors that attract the attention of the filters.

More thoughts below the proverbial flip.

Man, how many times have I seen some new poll and wanted to get somebody’s reaction on it. Seeing no post about it on SSP, I’ll post about it in the comments of the latest post (even if its totally on a different subject). Yep, that was just today with the latest batch of Majority Watch polls! Now I will soon be able to announce stuff myself in a (potentially recommended) diary. That’s totally excellent, as SSP fits my niche better than the massive DKos or the agenda-heavy MyDD. I can talk about Scott Rasmussen, Charlie Cook, CQ, Scott Eliott, and Larry Sabato, and people will just know what I’m talking about. Yay. OK, time for bed. Sweet dreams of Nancy Johnson, Sue Kelly, Steve Chabot, and Chris “Count” Chocola leaving congress forever.

By what margin will Bob Shamansky win?

Welcome to the New & Improved Swing State Project!

Welcome to the new SoapBlox-powered, diary-enabled version of the Swing State Project! If you’re seeing this entry at the top of your screen, that means we’ve just switched over to the new site. Things may look a bit “empty” around here at the moment, but new stories will be appearing soon.

Please feel free to sign up for a new User ID (your old TypeKey IDs won’t work) in the right-hand sidebar. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and start posting diaries! Our only request is that you stick to diaries which relate to the topics that this site covers: campaigns, elections, electoral strategy, polls, etc.

In other words, If you want to write about the Iraq war, you are probably better off doing so at DailyKos. But if you’ve got, say, a poll which shows how the Iraq war is affecting the race in a particular state or district, then by all means post about that here.

No matter what, just go have fun!
