Welcome to the Blog World, John Burnett

State Representative John Burnett has started to publish a blog called the Jeff City Report. Most politicians make lousy bloggers, because they try to avoid saying anything that could avoid offending anyone. Fortunately, the Kansas City area is blessed with two politicians who put out first-class blogs - Fresh Meat and now Jeff City Report.

In judging blogs, I look for lively commentary, reasonably open commenting, and regular updating. What other blogs by elected officials rank among your favorites?

That's just his newsletter posted on the web. Need more if he's going to be welcome in the blogging world.

Well, as a reader here, you obviously have sophisticated taste, but at least he allows comments.

Not very impressive. His blog requires you to "sign up", so comments will obviously be heavily moderated.

Like most democrats, he will offer the illusion of participation without the reality.
