To Mickey: We Already Have Brent Bozell and Bernald Goldberg. We Don't Need Another One!
During my brief blogging hiatus, things have gotten out of control. Over at Slate, Mickey Kaus suggests that the Democratic party doesn't need a strong spokesman. Why? Because:
After all, there already is an effective anti-Bush opposition party in America. It's called the media. We don't need two of them! (emphasis in original)Blech. We already have a right-wing media and a mainstream media staffed by a combination of, on the one hand, liberals who don't seem to particularly care whether their side wins or loses, and on the other hand, conservatives who are willing to function as Republican operatives. So yes, it is rather important for the Democrats to have strong spokesmen.
