State of the union

Posted By on Mon, Jan 22, 2007 at 3:41 PM

Heard of Hot Soup? It's a newish website devoted to discussion, in a serious vein, of politics and public policy. One of the founders is Ron Fournier, a former Capitol reporter in Little Rock who moved to Washington as an AP reporter to cover the Clinton administration.

They'll be covering the State of the Union speech tomorrow, of course, and they're promising lots of live posting and unscreened comment by a number of people, including former governors and presidential contenders Mike Huckabee and Tom Vilsack. Unscreened posts to The Huckster? Somebody, please, ask him about those crushed hard drives. And what happened to the disappearing book ad on his PAC website. And whether any Huckabee is employed by the consultant for his PAC. And about who really owns the lights and speakers taken from the governor's conference room. And who contributed the furniture that he took with him and how he was able to accept that gift under ethics laws/ And when he plans to stop using his PAC to pay for presidential exploring and start using a presidential exploratory committee. And is he for or against the increase in troops in Iraq. Etc

According to Hot Soup, you can tap into this particular discussion loop here. (But not just yet.)
