Rightwing Bloggers Marching in Lockstep (Again!)
Rightwing bloggers have been so fixated on John Kerry’s dumb comment, I’ve almost forgotten what they used to write about. What happened to “family values,” “stay the course,” “gay marriage,” “cut and run?”
The rightwing automatons must have been running out of ammunition, because Kerry’s “botched joke” sure has given them something to blather about. I don’t know who’s been sending out daily instructions to thousands of rightwing bloggers, but they sure did get the memo.
Flocks of birds will often swoop and zigzag in unison, but Homo Sapiens doesn’t operate that way. If several thousand people are walking along, you won’t see them stopping and starting and turning in lockstep (unless they’re military recruits following their Drill Instructor). Do rightwing bloggers have a drill instructor? Does Karl Rove have the e-mail address of each and every one of them?
Surfing through the traffic exchange sites, it’s all you see. One rightwing blog after another: Kerry this, Kerry that, Kerry insulted the troops, Kerry hates America…The lemmings are on the march. It’s kind of like that scene in Monty Python’s “The Life of Brian” where Jesus/Brian called out to a huge crowd “you are all individuals.” And they all responded in unison with “yes we are all individuals.”
