Tasini-ites Say "Vote Hawkins!"

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for the U.S. Senate from New York, is getting some play on at least one site in the blogosphere.

As we reported yesterday, Jonathan Tasini's blog is still up and running despite his defeat at the polls Tuesday night by Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary for Senate.

Tasini, as we mentioned yesterday, is asking his supporters to help him decide where to expend his efforts in November.

One of the options he mentions is to "support the incumbent."

Judging by comments on the blog, that is not a popular sentiment among Tasini's supporters. Many are suggesting Tasini-ites put their support behind Hawkins, a Syracuse resident who's Web site says he co-founded the national Green Party in 1984.

Hawkins' positions are similar to those of Tasini on major issues - get out of Iraq now, single-payer universal health care and a two-state solution for Palestine and Israel.

It is a slow Friday. I offer it up for your perusal.
