Contradictions

Some clever fellow at The Next Right observes that while the Left’s style of governance remains top-down, its activist base has embraced bottom-up organizing. This is undoubtedly true, which makes it all the more ironic that the Right’s “grassroots” network is run by a cabal of obsolescent managers.

UPDATE: The Times has an excellent story on Obama’s social-networking platform. In light of his campaign’s success, I’m surprised we haven’t seen a Facebook-esque website for political organizing.
