Wow. This is pretty damn funny:
No matter what happens in this year’s election, the conservative blogosphere deserves to win a collective Pulitzer Prize for its election-year coverage. While the mainstream media has given Americans a very distorted picture of Barack Obama, portraying him as a thoughtful, intelligent, unflappable, decent family man who has the temperament and judgment to be President, the conservative blogosphere has been the only place where you can get the real story. Hampered by quaint, old-fashioned rules of journalism that require citing evidence and reputable sources, the mainstream media has failed to report a number of important stories about Obama and the conservative blogosphere has had to step up and do the media’s job for them.
I took a semester-long seminar on conspiracy theories in college. I remember feeling vaguely resentful that Richard Hofstadter singled out small-government conservatives for their conspiratorial tendencies. Perhaps he was on to something?
