sittin’ on the top of the tower, watching the votes roll away….

in case you weren’t aware, former investigative journalist and candidate for the democratic nomination for senate in 2008, dale cardwel cardwell, has decided in a publicity stunt generally reserved for morning drive radio shows to perch himself on top of the corey tower in downtown atlanta, until opponent vernon jones admits he is a bigger bad-ass or something that i can’t quite figure out.

for kicks, andy over at cl fresh loaf has been having a rip-roaring time at dale’s expense, so head over there and check out his posts.

and if you are tired of wasting time at work on facebook playing online scrabble (oh wait, that’s me) dale even has a live web cam up.

then again, i am writing about it and andy has written about it multiple times, so maybe better to be a relevant joke than an irrelevant joke.

h/t to frequent commenter abby for suggesting via suggest-a-story who points out that if you are looking to have a little fun you can also leave some comments on dale’s web site.

abby’s nomiation for best comment so far – “Maybe Dale is filming an urban version of Man vs. Wild”

    Two examples of why blogs are not news: you spelled Cardwell’s name incorrectly, and your source was another blog. Sad

    hey bill, thanks for pointing out the typo. i suppose that has NEVER happened in a print publication before.

    it may surprise you to know that i agree with you as it pertains to news and blogs.

    then again no one on this site is claiming to post ‘news.’

    Two more examples of how blogs are not news. They’re spelled differently and they have different meanings. Happy
