Many on the lefty blogosphere have trumpeted the “netroots” – the use of blogs and web-based activism to push our side over the Repukes.  Rodriguez-Cuellar provides a little reality check.
In point of fact, raising money from the netroots is important but very limited.  Money makes the world go ’round, but on-the-ground activism gets out the vote.

  1. Did Rodriguez change his operation from 2004 to improve his ground game?
  2. Did the changes he made do any good?  He appears to have lost by the same amount
  3. Why was Morales in the race?

We, the lefty blog subscribers, are getting hit every day for contributions, by email, telephone and letter.  Are we getting our money’s worth?
