Maureen Dowd, acerbically nasty as usual, asks “Is the Internet over?” She cites the recent entry of presidential candidates into Blogalonia as exhibit one in the affirmative. I say, turnaround is fair play. If blogs can invade the campaign, the candidates can invade the blogs. The vapidity of their efforts bears testimony to the dearth of original ideas on display.
According to Dowd: ” In a lame attempt to be hip, pols are posting soggy, foggy, bloggy musings on the Internet. Inspired by Howard Dean’s success in fund-raising and mobilizing on the Web, candidates are crowding into the blogosphere — spewing out canned meanderings in a genre invented by unstructured exhibitionists.”
