One of the reasons I love Carl at Washington State Political Report so much (again… in a manly, heterosexual way) is that he has a great eye for pointing out great posts at great blogs I don’t read nearly often enough. Like this terrific piece from Shaun at Upper Left.
Shaun answers a question posed by Jon on Evergreen Politics in response to the League of Conservation Voters early endorsement of Sen. Maria Cantwell… a story I first broke here. (Man, this is getting self-referential.) Jon asked:
I’m curious what you think — is it hard for you to get over Maria’s war-mongering, too? Or am I just being a grump? Am I under-estimating LCV’s grassroots mobilization prowess?
To which Shaun replies, “yes, yes and yes.”
Shaun then goes on to tell a great story about how he and Maria first crossed paths, and why two decades later she’s a US senator, while he’s just a lowly blogger like me. Great story. Read the whole thing.
