Both are good reads. Norman offers some hope and a challenge to Virginia's conservative bloggers.
- But as I told Peter when he made this argument at the last Tuesday Morning Group meeting, he is ignoring the one medium where conservatives have an existing infrastructure: the Internet and blogs.
Then issues this challenge
- If we are even moderately successful, more and more conservatives will start reading blogs, and perhaps even creating their own. While blogs are not yet an adequate replacement for broadcast and print media, they are an essential messaging platform. Stop wringing your hands because the local paper won't print your letter to the editor. Stop arguing with the television set. Get a blog and get busy.
I agree. The Conservative blogs have a bright future. Norman points out that many conservatives are not reading blogs. I feel we need the MSM ( local newspapers ) to plug them. The WAPO did and that was great! Myself, every time I go to the college or library, I create a short cut on the desktop to Chads site and others. Who knows if it helps, but at least I am trying.
