Dennis the Peasant broadsides the Cap’n…
If there has been one consistent thread linking the efforts of the Conservative/Republican to grow itself, its that the people involved simply don’t know what they are doing. Period. One need look no further than the God-awfulness of Pajamas Media, the silliness of PorkBusters, and the flat-out embarrassment that is One Billion Bulbs to understand that the Right Wing’s talent pool is very, very shallow. Whatever you might think of Markos Moulitsas’ politics, the fact is that he has created a huge online community that, in and of itself, outstrips all similar Conservative/Republican efforts combined by simply working smart and working hard. That his web site design is a thing of genius is undeniable, but do we have any Conservative/Republican bloggers attempting to replicate DailyKOS for our political ends? Of course not.
Why is that?
