Imagine that you're a right-wing ideologue pretending to run a "multimillion dollar opinion manufacturing machine" here in North Carolina. Imagine further that you decide to write a personal column about the role of blogs and political parties in current campaigns. Being a person of modest intellect, you gaze around the state, looking for stories that might bring to life the growing impact of blogging in key races.
But also being a card-carrying member of the lunatic fringe, you conveniently ignore stories like this one, and this one, and these. Instead, you focus your biased eyes on your own latest attempt at "opinion manufacturing" by bringing in a fellow wishful thinker whose delusions about the state of our nation rival your own.
And so it is that the Puppetshow hosted a blogging conference this weekend with none other than Scott Johnson, the so-called brains behind Powerline, as keynote speaker. He had this to say on his blog today:
Do Democrats care as much about protecting the United States from nuclear missiles as they do about protecting House pages from Mark Foley's digital missives? I hope so, but I don't think they really care about either very much. Mark Foley's gone now, but North Korea and Iran remain to threaten the end of the world as we know it.
These @$$holes are actually happy that North Korea to set off a nuclear bomb this morning. It's taking some of the heat off Foleygate . . . and it shows just how badly they want to keep their power.
These people are sick. And perfectly predictable.
