Jon Corzine Member Of Cultural Elite To Join New Group Blog

Business 2.0 reports that Arianna Huffington, will soon launch the Huffington Report, a webzine that will host a group blog manned by the cultural and media elite. The first member of the group blog mentioned is none other than Senator John Corzine, candidate for Governor of New Jersey.

Huffington, the conservative-turned-liberal author, pundit, California gubernatorial candidate, and bona fide blogger, is adding "media entrepreneur" to her list of titles with a new online publishing venture, the Huffington Report.

Based in New York and staffed with a full complement of editors, the Huffington Report appears to be a culture and politics webzine in the classic mold of Salon or Slate. It will have breaking news, a media commentary section called "Eat the Press," and its most interesting innovation, a group blog manned by the cultural and media elite: Sen. Jon Corzine, Larry David, Barry Diller, Tom Freston, David Geffen, Vernon Jordan, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Harry Evans and his wife, Tina Brown. That's just to name a few, and Huffington is still recruiting.

Portion of an old Slate article:

"Except for his plan to privatize part of the Social Security trust fund, Corzine could have snoozed through the last 20 years of politics. He opposes welfare reform and the death penalty."

"Forget the end of entitlements: He is running on a platform of universal everything—universal, employer-paid health insurance, universal preschool, universal college scholarships for B students, universal gun registration. And if he has a clue how he's going to pay for any of his universals, he isn't sharing it. Most businessmen in politics pride themselves on their sharp edges. Corzine is all fuzzy: He has a fuzzy beard. He wears fuzzy sweater-vests. He has fuzzy ideas."

"If he were not a centimillionaire, in short, Corzine would be a laughable candidate...He did not bother to vote in the last 10 years of primary elections."

"So why is he a serious contender? Because Democratic leaders and consultants see him as a political version of the dot-com bubble company. The dot-com bubble swelled on the notion that no matter how bad the idea is, if you throw enough money at it, it can win. (And if it doesn't, it's not your money anyway.) Throwing money has been Corzine's strategy. He cadillac-ed up with the finest political consultants: TV ad maestro Bob Shrum and pollster Doug Schoen, among others. He bought votes where he could: He greased the county Democratic organizations with hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions, which won him the support of political machines and prime placement on ballots."

"The consultants have designed the campaign to make Corzine palatable but protected. He has avoided televised debates and spontaneous press meetings. Meanwhile, the campaign saturated both New York and Philly markets with TV ads, shanghaied most of the Garden State's radio spectrum, drowned voters in direct mail, and plastered Corzine's name on every bus and billboard it could find. ('The only medium he hasn't monopolized is stained glass,' jokes Rutgers University political analyst Ross Baker.) Corzine's ads are as generic as can be: He is shown in golden soft focus. His campaign slogan—'Bold ideas. New answers'—must be F3 on the political consultant keyboard."

-recycling old campaign themes do work I guess....the more things change the more they stay the same

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
