Boston Globe Reports on Kerry Blogging

The Boston Globe has reported on Kerry’s recent blog posts, noting his posts at Daily Kos:

In an effort to reach grass-roots liberal activists, Senator John F. Kerry has begun posting entries to a blog that his presidential campaign disavowed in 2004.

Kerry has posted three entries in the past two weeks to, a popular website known for freewheeling political discussions and left-wing bent.

The Massachusetts Democrat distanced himself from the site, which was linked to his campaign website, in 2004 after what his campaign termed an unacceptable comment by the site’s author about the slayings of four US contractors in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. The bodies of two of the contractors had been hung from an iron bridge over the Euphrates River.

The site’s author, Markos Moulitsas, called the contractors ‘’mercenaries,” and added, ‘’They are there to wage war for profit” and then dismissed them with a profanity.

Kerry’s staff declined to comment on why the senator now feels comfortable writing on the blog. But comments posted by DailyKos readers welcomed his apparent change of heart. As of yesterday, Kerry’s three posts had attracted about 3,000 mostly positive responses.

No mention in the report that Kerry also had a blog post at The Democratic Daily.
