WE FINISHED UP OUR PODCAST INTERVIEW WITH RNC CHAIR KEN MEHLMAN a few minutes ago. It was nice of him to come back after our phone problems yesterday, especially as I think the interview was a bit more contentious than he had expected. It’ll be posted later, but I think that the GOP shouldn’t bank too heavily on the “Democrats are worse” argument. It’s not that it isn’t true, much of the time, but you can only go to the same well so often.

Mehlman was also promoting the new GOP grassroots website, MyGOP, which is sort of like MySpace for Republican grassroots activists. I think the site is a great thing, though it’ll be interesting to see how things develop: They’re rolling out a grassroots-empowering technology at a time when the grassroots aren’t very happy.
