Mindless Drones

Erstwhile Bush fellater advisor Dan Bartlett on the White House's use of rightwing bloggers: "I mean, talk about a direct IV into the vein of your support. It's a very efficient way to communicate. They regurgitate exactly and put up on their blogs what you said to them. It is something that we've cultivated and have really tried to put quite a bit of focus on."

This is one area in which the Democrats will never be able to compete. They're stuck with supporters who have integrity, critical thinking skills, and a healthy need to question authority. So we're, in turn, left with a political party that can't effectively stage a coup if they manage to occupy at least two branches of government.

You're welcome, America.
