Bloggers Digest

Karl Rove and his gang refuse to "go gentle into that good night." The Master himself is pontificating away in Newsweek and now one of his gnomes, Dan Bartlett, pops up in a Texas Monthly interview to pay tribute to conservative bloggers with Rovian eloquence:

"I mean, talk about a direct IV into the vein of your support. It’s a very efficient way to communicate. They regurgitate exactly and put up on their blogs what you said to them. It is something that we’ve cultivated and have really tried to put quite a bit of focus on."

Regurgitating is hard enough, but regurgitating exactly is an art that requires mastery of computer cut-and-pasting. So kudos to Bartlett for having cultivated such a high level of obedience and, on behalf of bloggers of all persuasions, let me simply say that Rove and Bartlett have always made me want to throw up.
