Worth a look at this RedState post by Congressman Blount from the other day:

Anyone who reads RedState on a regular basis knows by now that the contributors who lend content to the site aren’t shills for Republicans in Congress.

And it’s that dogged independence that gives so much credibility to the conservative blogosphere -- credibility that simply doesn't exist on the left, where blogs like the Puffington Host [sic.] and Daily Kos serve as a bulletin board for standard Democratic talking points, and where opposing viewpoints are shouted down from view.

So former Presidential counselor Dan Bartlett was lying was he said they were feeding talking points to the RightWingNoiseOSphere?

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.

Evidently comments at blogs like the Great Orange Satan ardently disagreeing with a post counts as shouting down, and everyone shaking their head in agreement with endless war, torture and abrogation of the 4th amendment makes for healthy debate. Holy Shit Storm in the Morning no wonder I'm not a Republican! I ain't got enuf smarts to figger out shit like 'at. (Does anyone know if Congressman Blount is do for a tune up at the rehab center or not? If so do you think he'll turn me onto his stash of whatever it is he's smoking?)

The ignorance of the Rights leadership can be stunning at times.
