George: Flat Stanley Travels to Boston. Apparently there’s a whole project for the travels of Flat Stanley. George took their Flat Stanley to some important Boston historical sites. Hey George: how about taking Flat Stanley to the new I-90 extension?
Heh. I’ve said before that we’re in trouble when I cover politics and Greg covers Mac software. Well, today it’s happening again, with the ongoing Republican astroturf saga here and Greg discussing Jefferson, the new Mac OS X front end to the Thomas legislative database. I had a chance to play with it last night, and it’s pretty cool. The first thing I did was to plug in my senator’s name, which led me to the long list of amendments to the appropriations bill currently under way (linkage once I figure out how to work Thomas’s web interface). Jefferson is definitely a useful tool to keep yourself informed as a citizen; I would never have spent the time to figure out Thomas, but Jefferson makes it quick and easy.
So who is gopteamleader.com? Why, the Republican National Committee, of course. They’re eager to make sure you never have to think for yourself, too: check out the page of Democratic “attacks” and responses.
