Mike Haines is running in the Democratic primary in Georgia’s 12th district. His campaign staff have bought some blogads to appeal to a national audience for funding. Clicking on a blogad on DailyKos, members of the massive and activist DailyKos community (aka Kossites) have arrived at the Haines blog to critique the ad, offer support and ask for the candidate’s positions on a slew of issues. He’s just responded. Haines’ opponent in the race, John Barrow, has also bought a number of ads on blogs.
Not your grandma’s media, is it?
