Because you won't read it in the Sun
A blog has apparently led to the firing of a staffer in the Ben Cardin for Senate campaign.
According to the Washington Times Insider Politics blog, a person labeling herself the 'Persuasionatrix' wrote that she was on the staff of a high profile, contested Senate campaign and was based in Baltimore.
Persuasionatrix wrote that staffers should pose holding Oreo brand cookies under the caption 'devouring the competition.'
They got the story from Wizbang:
Just days after Rep. Ben Cardin won the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Maryland, we've found the secret blog of a female Cardin staffer who has quite a bit to say about race, gender, and creepy old Jewish guys... It's not quite Washingtonienne, but Cardin's mystery staffer, known as Persuasionatrix, is dishing some anonymous dirt that's sure to leave a black eye on the campaign...Wizbang has posted the full blog here.
Religious insensitivities? Racial insensitivities? This is absolute red meat for Sun reporters who devoured the Steffen/MD4Bush story right? Oh, that's right; Ben Cardin is a Democrat so it will probably never, ever see the light of day in the Daily Disappointment.
EDIT: The Sun actually posted the story this afternoon, so presumably it will run in Sunday's paper.
