The Fascist “Left-Wing” Blogosphere?

Last December I argued that the emerging “liberal blogosphere” was and would continue to play a major role in US politics. Last month, every Democratic candidate for president attended the 2nd annual Yearly Kos (a convention of left-wing, liberal, and democratic partisan bloggers). Have a look at all the candidates’ websites and you’ll find links and tools to all the major online social organizations. The candidates furthermore employ full-time "bloggers" as part of there core campaign staff. Perhaps a better way to guage their political effectiveness is by how the "right-wing" portrays them.
