Obama’s speech

August 29, 2008

Whadda ya know? Left-wing bloggers are extolling the speech and right-wing bloggers are talking it down.

Gosh. You’d think they were all a bunch of partisans who not only watched it through their own filters, but consider it their duty to help or hurt Obama’s cause.

Nah. Bloggers are a new breed. They’d never do that.
