AIEEEEEE! Tipsy Australian Democrat Andrew Bartlett wants to start blogging:

Senator Bartlett said he was looking at new ways of using the site, such as making it more interactive through a "blog", or online journal to which website visitors could contribute.

"It's important because politics is about communicating ideas," Senator Bartlett said.

Bartlett is a big fan of interactively communicating ideas.

Mr. Bartlett should return to the US, where his brother Jed, who is already President, can protect him from such baseless charges.
