At first I thought this had to be some kind of a joke, but it turns out it's true. NBC's David Gregory actually said that -- get this -- bloggers are to blame for the polarization in politics!
Bloggers?! Jesus, give me a fucking break.
I could go on a rampage here and start screaming out all of the ways that this is just wrong, but I see that fellow blogger Words of Power has already done it for me:
Yes, of course, it was the bloggers who polarized the US body politic.And that's just for starters. Power goes on in that vein for a long ways and never repeats himself once.
The bloggers spent $50 million plus on Ken Starr's rogue investigation, which was coordinated with the work of the privately funded, reich-wing "Arkansas Project."
The bloggers shackled Susan McDougal and sent her to jail.
The bloggers impeached a popular President at a time of peace and economic prosperity over testimony in a civil suit involving sexual intercourse.
The bloggers issued that voluminous report on Bill Clinton's dalliance with Monica Lewinsky, and posted it on the WWW.
Way to go, my brother blogger. And now, as you know, I gotta be gettin' back to my 24/7 mission of polarization.
So much politics, so little time...
