Rep. Rob Teilhet tries hand at vlogging

Seems like every few months, another Georgia legislator lets it be known that he (so far, only men, I believe) is launching a blog. But, almost always, after the initial flurry of posts, they seem to get busy with other things and months go by without new updates. So far, the only lawmaker who seems to have stuck with it is dyspeptic Rep. Steve Davis, R-McDonough, whose blog is a good argument for why some thoughts should remain private.

Now comes Rep. Rob Teilhet, D-Smyrna, who takes things one step further by offering a video blog – or "vlog," for you old-timers – titled "Inside Georgia." He's got one installment up so far and it's … OK. It's very casual, apparently unscripted and filmed in a couple of takes in the Teilhet household with kids crying and banging stuff in the background. In about four-and-a-half minutes, he tells us he wants to concentrate on a consumer-protection bill to crack down on high-interest "instant tax rebates" offered by tax-preparation companies and other lenders. Also, he thinks the Legislature should be looking out for very small businesses. And that's about it. You do, however, get to see his kitchen and home office.

What I want to know is, Who's holding the camera? His wife, the former Heather Hedrick, is communications director for Gov. Sonny Perdue, so she should know her way around a camera, but is she allowed to assist her husband in his political endeavors? There's a rumor that they had twins on purpose so one could be raised as a Democrat and the other as a Republican. (OK, so I made up that last bit.)

We'll be checking in on Teilhet's website for the frequent posts we expect to follow, right?
