BDT came back from his self-imposed sabbatical to make a post on Talk Left.
It seems clear today that the some of Left blogs and other Obama supporters have proven again to be Barack Obama’s worst enemies. The Obama campaign spent the last week trying to drive the conversation back to McCain as Bush’s Third Term. The Left blogs would have none of it, nor would the Media, especially the Obama News Network, NBC.
He promised not to make another post about the election… then he made another post, which wasn’t really a post but “an open thread”. He did however join in on the comments involving his post to explain why he posted when he said he wasn’t going to.
I write this post because I think it is a fairly original thought that I have not read elsewhere.
I do not expect to write any more posts this week.
He then made another post called “Thursday Open Thread 2”. Which isn’t a post but an “open thread”.
Regarding my earlier post on the Palin speech, some interesting focus group findings from Greenberg Quinlan:
Posts and comments both end up on the Internet and involve text and personal opinions, but “open threads” aren’t posts, so they don’t count. Anyway, the comments section got somewhat heated. Trying to put a face to BDT and the commenters, I could only think of a couple of retro TV icons.
What was weird was how BDT slammed Jeralyn, who hosts Talk Left. BDT is merely a guest blogger at her invitation. If he feels so badly about what he perceives as ugly behavior by left blogs and his host, then he should get his own blog.
It’s really easy BDT. You just sign up at Blogger or WordPress and awaaaaaay you go.
