Krazy Kos Kids strike again
Mark Coffey found a post on the popular Lefty blog Daily Kos asking that burning question: “Is Bush collaborating with Bin Laden?” It’s not satire; it’s full-blown looniness dipped in Oliver Stone paranoia and rolled with Bush Derangement Syndrome.
Lorie Byrd notes: “You know what the difference between the wacko blogs on the Right and the wacko blogs on the Left is? The wacko blogs on the right don’t draw high traffic from conservative readers. Liberal blog readers, however, have driven their wacko blogs to the top of the traffic rankings. Many of the top ranked right-leaning blogs could be described as edgy, but none come close to the wacko factor of DailyKos.”
This is, of course, an echo of a famous quote by US News & World Report columnist Michael Barone: “So what hath the blogosphere wrought? The left blogosphere has moved the Democrats off to the left, and the right blogosphere has undermined the credibility of the Republicans' adversaries in Old Media. Both changes help Bush and the Republicans.”
