Grey Lady is a DFH (Dirty Effing Hippie) now?

From a surreal editorial in Sunday's NYT:

We would lend such efforts [to stop Bush] our enthusiastic backing and hope Mr. Leahy, Mr. Durbin and other Democratic leaders are not swayed by the absurd notion circulating in Washington that the Democrats should now “look ahead” rather than use their new majority to right the dangerous wrongs of the last six years of Mr. Bush’s one-party rule.

From Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler:

Liberal idiots [redundancy] are knee-jerk troglodytes that regurgitate any lunacy so long as it smears Republicans, puts America in a bad light and licks the asshole of every communist, theocrat and dictator.

There are a lot of regular blogosphere "features" out there already, more than I can easily name. There's the Daily Wanker, or best demonstration of what makes winger "logic" the joke it is. There's the Five O'Clock NewsDump, when some embarrassing detail of Republican malfeasance is swept under the rug by our Famously Free Press. I now propose it's time we bring back and Oldie but Goodie; one that has a special relevance in this new year. Read more about Feature: Daily SCLM Misogyny

MegaMedia Reform Blowout

Get to this if you can. Looks like real fun. Congresscritters, real live Movie Stars, journalists and journamalists, activists. Media reform is one of my top issues, and I'm sorry I won't be able to go, even as I'm glad this isn't happening in the Beltway. Read more about MegaMedia Reform Blowout
