The difference between liberal and conservative bloggers?

March 15th, 2007

Ann Althouse asks, generic viagra tadalafil “who is the best liberal blogger?”

I’m a lot less interested in that than I am in the different way the Left and the Right seem to perceive blogs.

For the Left, blogs have really becoming organizing and fundraising tools. They’re a political force in almost the same way that political machines used to be.

I don’t think that’s true in the same way for Conservatives.

I suspect that many of us in the rightward-tilting blogosphere are more interested in grinding our own axes and tweaking the powerful than we are in organizing politically.

    You forgot shameless self-promotion.

    Seriously, I think you’re on the right track. That’s probably why there are more collaborative liberal blogs than there are collaborative conservative blogs.

    You’re not shameless, James, just bold. ;)

    You hear that, punks? I’m an organizing and fundraising tool! A political force! Boo-ya!

    Oh, and how come I didn’t make the comments to Althouse’s post?
