We have a new website on the internets…

The Georgia GOP was so excited to announce the launch of the new website that people were getting told two, three, four times.  Gone are the days of a clunky old thing with dozens upon dozens of pages.  Here are the days of a clean and attractive new site with a noticeable branding plug for SRG.  I wonder what the cost for this site is?

That said, it is a far, far improvement from the previous one.  I’ll be personally interested to see how county parties without web resources find benefit in the new site, since what’s lacking is good digital infrastructure on the local level for fledgling county organizations.

…that Anthony Weiner blames for his second demise.

Well, this isn’t 1955 so it’s probably best not to tweet your junk, good sir.  However, Weiner does seem a bit more honest and open about who he is:

“[The criticism] rolls off my back, because that’s the way I am constitutionally. [Huma Abedin] is more sensitive. I’m just an empty, soulless vessel, so it doesn’t hurt me as much.”

Well said, sir.  Well said.

Meanwhile, things that don’t need the internet are back.

That’s right, the shutdown is over and our national parks are back online.

“NPS Director Jonathan Jarvis denied the charge that the closures were politically motivated. Most of the Park Service’s 20,000 employees have been furloughed during the shutdown severely limiting operations, he said.”

Of course, one wonders why an open air monument on the National Mall needed “closing.”  It also makes me wonder why park employees I never saw when it was open all of a sudden made themselves show up to close the park.  Just admit it – you had the power to punish people for the shutdown and you took it.
