After my post about Congressman Polis and healthcare reform yesterday I engaged the Congressman in further discussion over in the comments section at Pols. I stand by my assesment's of the Congressman and my criticism of his actions in this case and in other cases.
Reflecting on the exchange though it occured to me how very exciting it is that Polis engages with the public (I'm not in his District) on this level. His wading into the comments section on a political blog no doubt gives Polis' staff heartburn but he's been a regular commenter and poster his entire time in office. He should be commended for his accessibility and his fairly thick skin as he takes incoming from the rabble.
