Connelly in Nevada
In the era of dwindling newsroom budgets, the P-I has again stepped up to the plate by sending Joel Connelly to cover the Democratic caucuses in Nevada. We have our disagreements with Connelly here at Sound Politics, but I applaud the P-I's commitment to covering the Presidential race.

1. It's all horse race, all the time. Connelly would do the P-I better in Seattle, doing character assassinations of local Republicans.
2. Good news! What Joe does is leagal in Nevada.
3. It would only be newsworthy if they had sent him with a one-way ticket.
4. Any chance Joel decides to just stay there?
5. It would have been cheaper to have Wayne Newton text message updates to Joel.
6. A tip for Joel --- the Horseshoe comps a great porterhouse!
Who the hell cares what Connelly is doing. Are you his puppy dog or something? Really Eric, your obsession with him is unnatural.
By the same token, one could argue your upset with my postings is unnatural. I'm simply commenting on the P-I actually spending money on political coverage, which is becoming an increasingly rare phenomena in modern journalism. It could be another reporter besides Connelly for all I care.
Eric & pbj,
It matters little who Pravda-Izvestia (P-I) send to Nevada, as no one reads the rag anyway.
10. pbj, if you think Eric is bad, remember Stefan, who you want back.
