Linky love

Great news, Christians -- President Bush has blown a kiss to us right-wing bloggers! This exciting development comes via my Prayer Warriors at Power Line:
“I think what’s healthy is that there’s no monopoly on the news,” Bush said. “There’s competition. There’s competition for the attention of, you know, 290 million people, or whatever it is.

“And the amazing thing about this world we live in is that there’s a kind of free-flowing, kind of bulletin board of ideas and thoughts out there in the ether space, sometimes landing on somebody’s desk and sometimes not, but always available. It’s a very interesting period.”

Having long been pilloried by the mainstream media, Bush now finds the rise of the alternative media nothing less than revolutionary.

“It’s the beginning of the twenty-first century; it also happens to be the beginning of—or near the beginning—of a revolution in newsgathering and dissemination,” he said. “Not in newsmaking—that tends to be pretty consistent.”
I don't know about you, but just the thought of President Bush saying the word dissemination makes my ladyparts all tingly! And to be personally recognized by the greatest president in the history of history? Well, on behalf of Christian bloggers everywhere, let me just say, "Mr. President, you're welcome."

Of course, it isn't all flight suits and sweet nothings. Karl Rove has a few unkind words for lefty bloggers:
“There is so much ugliness and viciousness and fundamental untruths that the blogosphere transmits,” he lamented. “It also is a vehicle for ugly rumors, for scurrilous personal attacks, an avenue for the creation of urban legends which are deeply corrosive of the political system and of people’s faith in it.”
Amen, Brother Karl! But as long as political discourse remains in the capable hands of us conservative bloggers, Truth will prevail over partisan spin and outright falsehoods. Praise Him!
