Jake got blogs!

Y‘all won’t want to miss this: Apparently, Glenn McConnell and Jake Knotts will be enlightening us as to the influence that blogs have on the political process.

You know, of course, that the Confederacy developed the first blog. It sank in Charleston harbor after sinking a Yankee newspaper. Blogs would not be seen again until after Al Gore invented the Internet.

Anyway, here’s the release:


This week’s SCETV Senate teleconference hosted by President Pro Tem McConnell on Thursday, May 3rd, at 9:30 a.m., will host Senator Jake Knotts, R – Lexington and Senator Kevin Bryant, R-Anderson as they discuss how blogs impact the legislative process.

We encourage you to personally attend this live program in the President Pro Tem’s Office on the 2nd Floor of the State House off the main lobby near the front door. To facilitate those who cannot attend, you can:

Ask questions ahead of time and have them read on the show:

Email them to Bill Rogers at brogers@scpress.org.

Deadline for submitting your questions is: Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.

(In the event of technical glitches with your calling in, it would be a good idea to still email your questions in to Bill Rogers to ensure that they are asked.)

  • No questions are given to the program participants until they are asked live on the programs.
  • Your questions can deal with any state or local matter you wish to ask of any of the program participants.  They do not have to be limited to the topic being discussed on the program.
  • This program has maintained a non-partisan approach and features guests representing opposing sides of the issues discussed.

To watch or listen to this week’s program live, just log on the internet:

Go to :  www.myetv.org/ 
Click on “pressroom” (left column) and then click on the statehouse dome.  This will take you to both This Week in the House and This Week in the Senate live. 
You can also call a toll-free number to listen in: (800) 846-8813. This is a listen only mode, so a question cannot be posed on this line.
The live feed only works during the telecast.

FYI, Sen. Bryant actually does have a blog, and is pretty conscientious about keeping it updated.

    I just read your post re Al Gore and “inventing” the internet. You know that “quote” was invented by Republicans. It never existed and yet you repeat it. Why?

    It’s a joke. Kind of like Jake being an expert on the Internet.
    I was also — and I don’t want to shock anybody — joking when I said the Confederacy invented the first blog.
    I apologize profusely to people who take things literally, and are strangers to irony. I realize people are born that way, and can’t help it.
    (I just did it again, by the way. Just so you know. Glad to help.)
