Fate of the Union

Clearly they (who?) weren't kidding when they declared the Blogosphere to be the media of the future, rendering the more traditional outlets (print, tv, radio) obsolete.

As an update, I have heard Skeaker Pelosi's State o' the Union blinking spree (see Jan 23 blog entry) discussed no fewer than three times in the tradtional media--more than 12 hours after you heard (read) it first on my blogsite.

If you don't think the mainstream left-wing (or, if you are so inclined, right-wing) press is scouring the blogosphere (this site included) for newsworthy content, think again.

My advice to you: Save yourselves some time--check my site before (or instead of) your preferred news (tabloid) outlet.

I had noticed that phenomenon myself. I think you combine the best in tabloid, class, and comedy. There's a bit of O'Reilly, Hannity, Blitzer, Crunkite, and Colbert in this blog (sounds a bit like a high-class law firm). And let's not forget the Brokaw factor. Your tongue-lashing fingers have teeth-crushing powers. I try not to blink as the truth flies at my face.

Btw, what's a skeaker? A cross between a skank and a speaker? A skunk and a peaker? A hybrid or a mongrel?
