Just a quick mote
What is that whooshing sound that you hear? It is all the hot air escaping from the self-styled "blogosphere." The blogosphere is the alternative reality Internet world, supposedly populated by vast communities of keyboard tappers linked by the World Wide Web. This campaign season, for the first time, the blogosphere had its own presidential candidate: Howard Dean.
Actually, it's not "self-styled'; it was Bill Quick's idea.
And if Beam thinks that Blogdom Assembled somehow embraced Dean to a greater extent than did Democrats voting in the primaries which is to say, hardly at all he needs to fire the person he hired to read blogs to him. (I hear kuro5hin has a couple of prospects.)
