Denny Hastert, Speaker of the House, has just started a blog. Interesting. In it, he says, referring to the blogosphere, “This is the future. And it is a new way for us to get our message out.”
Reading his first entry, it seems to me that this actually is the Speaker of the House writing, and not any ghost blogger. It feels informal, almost rushed, and certainly not polished in any way. It feels almost like a rough draft.
It will be interesting to see if he keeps it up. I’d like to see more government officials creating their own blogs.
