Subject: Enjoying the Kumbaya
Well, it looks like we're all on board now, eh?
Most of my favourite bloggers and columnists
(you, OneGoodMove.org, Paul Krugman, etc)
were for Hillary. A lot of your readers claimed
they'd leave for good because first you were
for Hillary (tougher fighter, 2% more liberal)
in the primary election because they thought she
was fighting *too* hard, and wasn't liberal enough.
And they claimed they'd leave because you
were for the Democrat in the general election,
because he wasn't the one who lost the primary.
We're a strange lot, us readers.
But now even the most ardent "Obamamaniacs" -
DailyKos, Keith Olberman, and arguably
Jon Stewart, are all on board with the assessment
that Obama isn't perhaps quite the magic pony
so many wanted to believe he was. Go figure.
Your readers came to you originally because you
advocated not doing stupid things, even when
the King of Doing Stupid Things was polling at
a historic 90%. Now he's at 23% and you're still
advocating not doing stupid things.
So, even though others have jumped on your band
and you've lost some credibility on your "low
I'm pretty sure your readers will be shuffling
PS. If you really want to goose up your readership
base, you don't have to change your positions.
Just try publishing your pages roughly 3 months
after you've written them. By then, most people
will agree with what they say already.
Don't we all just *love* sites that say just what
Mmm, you betcha! Ka-ching!
I'm going to take that as a compliment - I hope you meant it that way
