Atlanta blogs today

Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2008 at 3:10 PM

— It was Sarah Palin's big night and the blogosphere is alive with reaction. First off, Travis at the aptly-named Lucid Idiocy checks in with his "jerk" reaction.

— But ATLmalcontent  says liberals should at least acknowledge that Palin put on a good performance for the faithful.

– Decatur Guy doesn't agree. He writes at Atlanta Public Affairs that he thought Palin — along with other speakers last night — came across as bitter, angry and condescending about Obama's candidacy.

— Of course, Hurricane Gustav almost stole the spotlight from the Republicans and at Live Apartment Fire, there's a nifty critique on how the local TV stations covered the weather event.

— While the Democrats and Republicans bicker, Atlanta's still stuck in a massive traffic jam. B at Terminal Station takes a look at the state's commuter rail plan and notes that riding a train will take longer to reach Atlanta than driving. Which leads him to ask: If we're gonna spend all that money on rail, why in the world aren't we doing high-speed rail?

– And, finally, the Daley Briefing puts it all into a deeper perspective with a letter from Iraq written to Audrey Marie, his newly-born niece.
