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. I will admit that he can give an interesting take every once in a while and I do post those as well, but when it comes to being a filthy concerned troll, there is no worse. 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. There are many concerned trolls populating our sites now (David Bossie movies show up too) and it's unfortunate, but that happens in a heated primary. I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't point this stuff out.

As he's smearing Hillary--he goes right into the other Al Gore lie---you know the one---that Al said he created the Internets. Dick also said this about John Edwards supporters not too long ago: 'Edwards voters don’t like the ‘black’ or the ‘female’

You see what I mean?

In '04, Morris said that al-Qaeda wanted John Kerry to win the election too. Thom Hartman called him out on his radio show over his hackery a while ago.

Media Matters breaks it down:

In fact, Clinton did not say that Chelsea was jogging "around the towers of the World Trade Center" when the planes hit. 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." From the September 17, 2001, edition of Dateline NBC...

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." on

I write this as someone who knows what our liberal media will do to Obama as well because John McCain has them wrapped around his finger. Eschaton '08 is trying to expose this media problem as well:

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.

It’s between the Democrats and the media.”
