Politico blogger Ben Smith posted on his blog about Attorney General Eric Holder’s appearance at the University of Maine and how Holder addressed, or did not address the issue of gay marriage in Maine. Smith’s post works so well because he cuts right to the chase and proves that you can make headlines on your own blog with very few words as long as you engage readers quickly and link out appropriately. He linked out to the University of Maine newspaper’s write-up of the speaking engagement, a perfect source for the occassion.
Smith picks the perfect quote to bring the story full circle:
He did muster the opinion that the Defense of Marriage Act “is not necessarily a good piece of legislation.”
