On the way to work yesterday I was listening to NPR’s Fresh Air and the guy they were interviewing said something I had never heard before on the radio:
Okay, so it’s not a big deal, and blog isn’t a household word, but the momentum is starting and one day the spell checker might even accept it. I don’t want to get too optimistic, but one day I may not have to explain it after getting another confused look with scrunched up eyebrows followed by, “A blog, what’s that?”
The show was about moveon.org, a liberal web site that recently held a “Bush in 30 seconds” contest and rightmarch.com, a conservative site that plans to launch campaigns criticizing moveon.org. They also released a country song called, Hey Hollywood, denouncing liberal actors who act as if they’re speaking for the US. The lyrics (as well as more discussion of the song) can be found at the Talon News.
