Riding the Coattails of Success

Ever say to yourself, “gee I wish the Penn State College Democrats had a blog!”? Well first off, I’m sorry that’s what you are thinking about, and secondly, today is your lucky day.

Yes, it sounds like something out of a fairy tale, something too good to be true, but it’s reality! This is what greets freedom lovers as they visit the brand-spanking new blog of the PSU College Democrats.

With general interest in politics dropping off after the 2008 election, and with the College Republicans luring in members with promises of food (and tax cuts), the College Democrats are looking to emulate the success of the Obama campaign. Since technology being a must-have weapon in any campaign or political organization, it seems only logical that the College Dems would try to spread the good word through the internet.

The one question I have is will the College Dems be able to bring forth any unique content to inspire students to read their blog or, like with John McCain, will the world politely smile and turn the other way?

The Future of Footwear Comes to Penn State

A new fad has hit Penn State, one that threatens to be greater than Pogs, Pokemon, and Yo-yos combined. They make you feel like Buzz Aldrin, and make Sketchers’ ShapeUps look conservative.  I’m referring, of course, to Kangoo Jumps (KJs). Already rumored to be featured on the Richard Simmons comeback exercise video (full disclosure: the author started this rumor…right now), Kangoo Jumps are taking State College by storm, in all their goofy glory.
