There are a lot of new people coming to the blogs now more than ever before. I don't have the exact figures, but I'd venture a guess and say many, many more than in the '04 election which is a most excellent thing. I wish the primary had been won already just like many of us because I want to focus on making sure John McCain gets no where near the White House. As we've seen, he's as much a Neocon as Kristol. I've received a tremendous amount of emails asking me about the recent slew of Dick Morris smear articles so I'm posting this video of him since we have so many new faces, (hi!) who probably aren't aware of exactly what the Right Wing Noise machine is or who's opinion we should trust.

Gingrich is also having a grand old time applauding Obama's speech on race and then of course trying to use it to push his own right wing agenda.

On the September 17, 2001, edition of Dateline NBC, Hillary Clinton said that her daughter had "gone, what she thought would be just a great jog. She was going to go down to Battery Park, she was going to go around the towers. She went to get a cup of coffee and -- and that's when the plane hit."

Morris stated: "It's like Al Gore, 'I invented the Internet,' [Erich Segal's 1970 romance novel] 'Love Story was about me.' " Contrary to Morris' assertion, Gore did not say that he "invented the Internet" or that "Love Story was about me."...read on
The left-wing blogosphere is declaring an all-out war against the mainstream media – desperately concerned that inside-the-Beltway reporter-love for D.C. fixture McCain is already creating too large a mountain for any Democratic nominee to scale.
“This campaign is not going to be between the Democrats and the Republicans,” said Philadelphia’s Duncan Black, who writes under the name Atrios and whose highly popular progressive political blog, named Eschaton, inspired the gathering of bloggers and political activists called Eschacon '08.
