While trying to find out more about the recent poll showing Obama in 1st place in Iowa I ran across a few liberal blogs based in Iowa. I wondered if it would be possible to stage a blogathon such that conservatives (say from Massachusetts – and elsewhere) were to stampede the liberal blogs in Iowa campaigning hard against Hillary to see what the effect would be.
I don’t know if others of you have any experience in this, but where Iowa plays such an important roll in the upcoming primary elections it would be beneficial to visit and post comments on as many liberal blogs in Iowa as possible. In other words, stage a bit of a satellite campaign from our own homes in Massachusetts.
On the flip side of that same coin – go to the conservative Iowa blogs and post support for the more conservative candidates.
Imagine what the blogosphere would be like if suddenly the liberal Iowa blogs went wild with comments dragging Hillary through the mud. Or better yet, imagine what would happen if the conservative Iowa blogs came alive with support for Huckabee, Romney, whoever?
Anyone ever stage something like this before? Is it an idea worth pursuing?
