Election Day T- 100 Days and Counting
July 25, 2008 0700 ET
By Albert N. Milliron, Editor, Politisite.com
Hello all you Politicos, Politistes, Pollsters, Pundits, Political Scientists, Strategists, Statesman, the full electorate and, casual tea drinking political watchers.
There are one hundred days to the election, thats right just a bit over three months. This is the time when Political Strategists begin the re-frame of their candidates and their forward attacks against their opponents. During my time as a spin master (Public Relations) for a particular political party, I learned a few tricks along the way. During the next 100 days I will share some of the tactics used by the talking heads and pundits and give you the ability to tune your ears to determine what is spin and what is honest campaigning.
Additionally, I will be back on the campaign trail, reporting on location. We have upgraded our satellite equipment, bought a wireless card for our computers so we don’t get hit with what happened during the Youtube Republican Debate in Florida. We lost our wireless access, and just had an interview with Chuck Norris who was supporting Mike Huckabee. I was the first to speak with Mr. Norris and was excited to get back to our press room, to upload our story. The wireless was not working.
I then traveled back to the Space Coast, I finally made it to my destination at around by 3 am. The Internet service was awful. I still have relatives that are happy with 56K modems and get 28K down streams. My story had to sit there until the next morning. In this news environment, waiting until morning is a death blow. Our story made it, on the net, on the 25 page of Google. No news services picked our story, not even the photos. Some photos taken of the interview made it in the mainstream media as there were cameras all around. But as formy company and I, we dropped the ball not having an Internet back-up.
I will now let you know what our schedule will be in General. I will be updating you on events as that occur.
