Deep Thought of the Day
It's very "funny," and worth regular and front page blog posts on "liberal" blogs, to talk about Republican candidates who come in last, next to last, or nearly last. These same candidates get all kinds of free coverage from the media outlets the liberal blogosphere is supposed to "balance." They also have plenty of money to purchase their own ads, money raised from rich people and big corporations and the avowed enemies of the liberal blogosphere.
It's not funny, or worth any regular or front page blog posts, to talk about progressive Democratic candidates who finish just behind the "two front runners," or way behind, or even second in some races. These candidates have little money with which to buy ad time, and are constantly shut out of the primary process by way of lawsuits, media blackouts, and fact-free misrepresentation by the SCLM. They are at the same time closest in policy, voting records, and speech to the "liberal blogosphere."
Big Orange makes a related point. Kudos, Markos. I don't often tell you that, but I will today.
