The Washington Post's "The Fix" blog has some fun today with Plastics News' political coverage. The post, "Trade and hobby magazines have the best presidential campaign coverage. Seriously."
Other publications mentioned include Field & Stream, Guns & Ammo, Coin World, Saltwater Sportsman and Vogue Knitting.
If you can't laugh about Casual Living Magazine's coverage of Washington politics, you have no sense of humor. (Hint: it involves tailgating).
The blog post is funny, and I can laugh at myself. (One of the links was to one of my Plastics Blog posts. Remember, the one when Jon Huntsman Jr. dropped out of the GOP presidential race in 2012? Thanks for the clicks, Jaime Fuller!)
Seriously, though, Plastics News readers enjoy our political coverage, and there's been plenty to write about. Just today, The Hill wrote a long thoughtful piece on whether Ron Johnson — the former plastics company executive and U.S. Senator from Wisconsin — would face a challenge from former Sen. Russ Feingold.
And if you need a reminder, the current House speaker is another former plastics company executive. He's been in Congress since 1991. (The same year I joined Plastics News.)
