SENATOR KEN SALAZAR PRODUCES the world’s quietest Sister Souljah moment, by denouncing the MoveOn “Betrayus” ad, but in a newspaper with a smaller readership than many political blogs.
UPDATE: Elizabeth Edwards is criticizing MoveOn too but I don’t think it counts as a Sister Souljah moment, even a quiet one, when it’s your wife doing the criticizing.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Gary Harmon of the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel emails:
Prof. Reynolds: Here I sit, damned with faint praise re Salazarâ€™s Sis Souljah? Did you have to mention the size of the readership? Now I feel like the freshman on the first day in the locker room with the seniors. Again.
Actually, we wonâ€™t apologize for the size of our readership. Itâ€™s actually growing and not many can say that in this business. What is interesting is that the comments were made in a phone conference involving almost all Colorado media, including the big dailies and AP.
That it made it to our paper might explain why weâ€™re growing and, well, theyâ€™re not.
As Webb Wilder says: “You’re never too small to hit the big time!”
