The Logical Conclusion Of Matters

Elder Bush Decries Lack of Civility in Politics

“When our son was president they just hammered him mercilessly and I think obscenely a lot of the time and now it’s moved to a new president,” he added.

With a chuckle, Mr. Bush said his son’s critics “weren’t singled out as much as they should have been.”

No one could have known that Lee Atwater’s politics of personal destruction could have reached the point it did.

I agree with the former president on both points. I agree with Atrios too. That’s what they do.

Personally I doubt the glory days are over for the individual blogs so long as people want analysis, fact checking and opinion not filtered through the corporate charcoals that no amount of passion, wit or drama can flavor. In the end that is what the Village People are too, distilled, not refined.
