Common Iowan Makes the Washington Post: Part 2

The Washington Post has a great post about the rise of Iowa political blogs and they reference me and this blog again. They talk about Chris Woods and Bleeding Heartland, John Deeth, and Iowa Independent. Then they add...

Most blogs are inevitably more opinion-driven. Though two conservative blogs stand out -- The Real Sporer and Conservative Cyclones -- the state's more prominent blogs lean left. There's Century of the Common Iowan, written by Patrick Stansberry, a 44-year-old teacher, and Iowa True Blue, where Gordon Fischer, a lawyer and former chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, blogs about his support for Sen. Barack Obama, whom he's advising.
So I think it is safe to say that I have something in common with Valerie Plame: I have been outed by the Washington Post. The Post is correct in that I am a teacher, however, I am definitely not 44.

Iowa True Blue is unfactual and he doesn't allow comments. Go to Bleeding Heartland to look at the comments concerning a post Iowa True Blue put up recently about Obama.

First, CONGRATULATIONS NONEED. We do make a difference here in Iowa.

Second, while I have often wondered why Gordon doesn't allow comments I really doubt that Gordon said something that wasn't accurate. He is a genuine Boy Scout.

I see blogs in Iowa just beginning to take off. The caucuses have allowed blogs to expand. Now the blogs can take that and cover issues at the state house. I am looking forward to the next year.
