TNR Takes Obama's Blog to Task

Douglas Wolk has some rather interesting criticisms of the writing on Barack Obama's campaign blog. It's no secret that I'm a huge Obama fan. Maybe that is why I enjoyed Wolk's critique so much. He poses an excellent overarching question: why does Obama--a man who is a terrific writer--have such a poorly written blog?

In fairness, I suppose it is due in large part to the fact that he is not the person writing it. Nonetheless, it's still a pretty good question.
