The blogs' shocking truth

News & Politics

The gig is up. David Brooks has gotten to the heart of the matter in one masterfully-written column that makes me weep for my hometown paper.

The Times' David Brooks, "the sorta likable conservative," penned an op-ed in yesterday's paper implying that Markos Moulitsas, of DailyKos fame, is the Kingpin running the liberal blog crime family.

It's so laughable as to be a thing of beauty. The way you keep watching a movie that's so bad it's good.

Being a silent member of the blogging netherworld known as Townhouse it's a rare opportunity to not only have an ideological, case-based-on-facts disagreement but an actual working knowledge of the story in question.

To which I can honestly, 100% assuredly say: David Brooks, you are wrong. 100%. And you look a damn fool for it.

TRex does the dirty work in satire form, fleshing out the major portions of the conspiracy. Go HERE for the fine print:

1. Kos, in fact, does run everything.
2. There is a huge amount of money in blogging, but not from who you think.
3. The Townhouse Elite are republican operatives.
4. The Final Twist (FDL)
