I frequent some political blogs just to see what people are reacting to. I don’t think it really matters what the current administration does or what the Democrats do simply because both sides are incapable of a genuine compromise. The partisan bickering makes both sides pretty impotent.
One of the sites I check out is Michelle Malkin’s blog (as a counter to Crooks and Liars). Honestly, I occasionally I find that she has a good point. Today I took a look and she has an entry about how the CNN YouTube questioners were plants from the Democratic party.
No where in the blog entry does it address if the “plants” asked good questions. It did mention CNN’s incompetence and Democratic slant. This is why I think that political blogs are not really going to impact the next election. They’re just slightly better organized rants with a nicer presentation. Both the Republican and Democrat PR organs are better vehicles for slant and spin.
I don’t watch the debates because it’s just political pandering; pointless noise. It would never occur to me that the questions and the people participating were NOT planted and screened for effect.
I’ll continue to check out the blogs in my Red State folder as well as the ones in the Blue State folder but only for the entertainment value, as well as the Jack Cafferty clips.
