Lane Hudson made history when he blew Mark Foley‘s page loving lid. The Florida Congressman resigned and revealed his homo ways. The Republican party fell over itself trying to cover-up a cover-up. And the nation enrolled in collective therapy after reading Foley’s incriminating, cringe-worthy instant messages with under age boys. The virtual smoking gun.
No doubt the entire debacle would never have gone down had it not been for the internet and, of course, blogs. You may remember the whole drama started when Hudson posted those IMs on his anonymous blog, StopSexPredators. But Hudson’s just some gay dude, right? Right. Hudson proved himself to be a formidable political operative, all with the click of a mouse.
We know we don’t need to tell you blogs are more powerful than anyone ever imagined. And, as Hudson writes for AlterNet, they ain’t going nowhere:
The blogosphere is a living breathing medium, responding to the input it receives from the public and its readers. Jump into the blogosphere and make your voice heard.
You know what they say: if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.
Looks like we’re here to stay, homies, so take a little ride with us. We drive fast, but take our time on the curves, if you know what we mean… (Wait, what do we mean?)
