The Hobbsian Quotient

According to a local mainstream daily for whom State Republican Communications Director Bill Hobbs has reportedly done some work in the past on web redesign (which, by the way, leaves a lot to be desired):
When asked how he can maintain the separation in the public’s eye between being the state GOP’s top party spokesman and having a blog that mainly opines on Tennessee politics, Hobbs gave a simple response: “When I’m working, I’m working and when I’m not, I’m not.”
Let's slow this spin down. Bill Hobbs is employed by the Republicans, which means that when he communicates for them he works. Bill Hobbs blogs on behalf of conservative causes on his personal blog as a source of income, which means that when he communicates for himself he works.

So when is he not working when he blogs?
