Mike Berlon puts youth on the agenda; youth put him on YouTube
Today's bloggerThis weekend, the Young Democrats of Georgia held a retreat at Magnolia State Park to discuss how we're going to spend $250,000 in grant money that has the power to totally transform how Democratic politics in Georgia work. In a sign that times may finally be changing, DPG chair candidate Mike Berlon made a special effort to join us and address our group. Young Democrats, particularly our own Atlanta chapter, have been working supremely hard to shed the image of cute little kids who drink and complain - we're adorable kids who drink, complain, and work hard like nobody's business, and we're finally getting our props! Mike had some great things to say to us, not least of which was that the much-needed grassroots effort is going to include us - yay...

(So I decided to follow Shelby's footsteps and try this YouTube thing. Clearly a steadier hand on the camera is needed!)

So the bottom line is that finally, we're on the radar for the people running the party around here, and that right there is all the reason I need to get behind Mike 100% and hope like heck the state committee understands what positive change he'll bring to the DPG. Leaving young people out of the action is a mistake Mike won't repeat.

Doh, I knew I shouldn't post my outgoing five-day three-page magnum opus on a Friday!

So much for the headlines. Trump'd!

Oops ;-)

(I intend to thoroughly examine all the things you mention in your post since I'm still as gloriously un-hip as Al Gore when it comes to this stuff...)
