…the National Review’s online product as lowering the tone of political speech:

Now, generic cialis viagra thanks to the coarsening effect of the Internet on political discourse, the magazine may have lost something else: its reputation as the cradle for conservative intellectuals and home for erudite and well-mannered debate prized by its founder, the late William F. Buckley Jr.

In the general conservative blogosphere and in The Corner, National Review’s popular blog, the tenor of debate — particularly as it related to the fitness of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska to be vice president — devolved into open nastiness during the campaign season, laying bare debates among conservatives that in a pre-Internet age may have been kept behind closed doors.

Excuse me for a moment while I break into gales of laughter:

Hahahahahahahahahahahaahahahaahaha. Oh… Hahahahahahahahahahahaa. God that’s funny… Hahahahahahahahahahaha. They’re serious?! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

I guess, the New York Times never managed to see what liberals were writing about Sarah Palin at The Huffington Post, the DailyKos and even The Atlantic online.

Talk about the degeneration of political discourse.

    It’s funny, when I read their article I had the same thought.
