Do all the young little Journolist writers realize that all their self-protective, self-indulgent ego-stroking is viewed by the rest of the country as just as tawdry as the corruption of our government by corporations and lobbyists?
That, indeed, the rest of the country recognizes that all these little worms are doing is lining up to try and get their little slice of the power pie, with all its compromises and shenanigans, via mentions in a few local power blogs? To be the next Charles Krauthammer or George Will, as if these guys -- who supposedly have it made -- matter?
It's difficult to see how many words have now been expended on the terrible story of Dave Wiegel, who as far as I can tell has not ever contributed one meaningful idea to the national debate -- or, really, has done more than danced at some other poseur's wedding.
Small wonder that the intellectual foundations of our country are collapsing....
