Last night I noticed something rather interesting. Before the breaking news email alerts went out of the suspected “shoe bombing” aboard United Flight 663 the right side of the blogosphere jumped into action. It was like watching a seed turn into a tree in some cartoon where they put some sort of Acme Super Grow on it. Blog posts just bloomed on the right instantly over what turned out to be a very bad joke.
Compare that to two other big stories this week involving separate cases of men being arrested for threatening to kill sitting members of Congress, including the Speaker of the House. There has not been a peep out of the right side of the blogosphere in regards to these stories. I mean not one. I have searched and can’t find a single mention despite these stories getting some big press time nationally. Talk about one organized noise machine.
