McCain Dumps On The Blogosphere
While John McCain was sucking up to Jerry Falwell this week-end, he took a shot at the blogosphere:
“When I was a young man, I was quite infatuated with self-expression, and rightly so because, if memory conveniently serves, I was so much more eloquent, well-informed, and wiser than anyone else I knew. It seemed I understood the world and the purpose of life so much more profoundly than most people. I believed that to be especially true with many of my elders, people whose only accomplishment, as far as I could tell, was that they had been born before me, and, consequently, had suffered some number of years deprived of my insights…It’s a pity that there wasn’t a blogosphere then. I would have felt very much at home in the medium.”
That’s how he was a young man? What’s changed? It sounds like a perfect description of him right now.
On the other hand, the fact that he’s going after the blogosphere means that he realizes that we don’t like him, that he probably can’t turn us around, and that we’re a potential threat to him in 2008.
He’s absolutely right to view us that way.
