The Blog Glut
Catching up on my movie-watching is hard; keeping up with the proliferating campaign-related blogs is next to impossible. First my friend Matt Continetti starts up a must-read election blog for the Standard. Then Noam Scheiber and Michael Crowley kick one off over at TNR. Slate already has one; now they've added two new crack-for-political-junkies features. And of course I'm already struggling to keep up with all the scoops on the Best Reported Blog About Politics.
The only good news for a beleaguered political junkie like myself is that what Jay Cost (in a sharp post that I found, naturally, while browsing Continetti's blog) calls the "real campaign" - as opposed to the perpetual campaign - is finally, finally, about to begin.
