This is the best news I’ve seen all month. Right-wing hate radio victimized by its own success… at getting incompetent Republican clowns elected.

It would have been even sweeter if Spocko had been the one who took them down, but I’ll take it. These are some seriously vile, horrible people, and the public airwaves are much better off without them.

Who Watches The Watchmen?


So, probably not much posting tonight.

Wanker Of The Day

Mat Bai just radiates smugness.  And contempt for bloggers.

Hindman’s data backs up what should be obvious about the political blogs, for instance–that they are populated by a small and fairly homogenous group of people who constitute their own kind of political elite. The founder of Daily Kos, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, is a law school graduate who lives in Berkeley; the lead blogger on FireDogLake, Jane Hamsher, used to be the Hollywood producer of such family films as “Natural Born Killers”; Chris Bowers, the signature voice of Open Left, is (or at least was when I first met him) a graduate student in sociology. To suggest that the voices of 100 or so prominent bloggers of similar pedigree represent some new, more inclusive voice of the American everyman–which is what the bloggers themselves like to profess–is just fantasy.

And Jon Stewart is a wealthy TV personality… who channeled Everyman’s frustrated rage to utterly demolish the insidery, self-dealing, stock market cheerleaders at CNBC.  The problem with the Village isn’t so much who they are or what kinds of backgrounds they have – it’s who and what they care about, which is themselves and the establishment status quo.  When the supposedly elitist liberal bloggers start writing about how valuable corporations and rich people and the military-intelligence complex are, and how we can’t afford to hold them back, then I’ll start tuning them out.
