Atlanta blogs today July 30 2008

— It's the end of the world as we know it, and I don't know how I feel. GriftDrift has posted another installment of "My Morning Wooten" and ... he says Wooten makes sense. WTF? Thankfully, by the end he's poking at Wooten for pulling out the usual canard about the liberal media. There. All's right with the world again.

— Over at Good Will Hinton, there's a podcast interview with S.E. Cupp, co-author of the book Why You're Wrong About The Right: Behind The Myths. The stereotypes Cupp hopes to debunk? "Republicans are racist, we're humorless, we hate the planet, we're stupid, we're religious fanatics, we aren't cool," Cupp tells Hinton.

— Do we need to create a code of ethics for the blogosphere? A.man.I at My Urban Reporter discusses the news reports that Atlanta political blogger Andre Walker (Peach Pundit, Georgia Politics Unfiltered) is on the payroll of U.S. Rep. David Scott (D-Atlanta), yet wrote multiple posts about Scott without disclosing their relationship. A.man.I points out, and I second, that's an ethical no, no. See also CL editor Ken Edelstein's post on the issue.

Tondee's Tavern has a report from Ed, who is in China for the Olympic Games and laments the censorship he's already faced with Internet access.

—  Amy Smart received an invitation from Gov. Sonny Perdue to attend his annual fish fry and, as she writes on Georgia Women Vote!, she's not really amused since Sonny's "Go Fish Georgia" program is fully funded while schools are facing budget cuts.

— Things have been a little quiet on the Dora-Blog. But now Bubba Rich laments that the bad times have come back to Doraville, that touch of country in the city.
