  •  The believe anything crowd (2+ / 0-)

    is the same crowd who reads and believes the National Enquirer at the check-out stand.

    This is why I have no objection to the Jerry Springer slime and muck.

    Well, I object to it here.  We are supposed to be above it.  But if monkeys flew out of my ass today and the believe anything crowd decided to read dKos, I may have a different opinion on the matter, for tactical reasons.

    •  That's a good point, in fact the Enquirer (2+ / 0-)

      barrage against Sarah Palin may be the single best weapon in bringing down McCain/Palin among all the various Palingates.  

      That's largely because of the audience.  The National Enquirer is basically print journalism available at the checkout line, and it reaches exactly those voters that most of us in "respectable" publications have a hard time reaching.

      And the best part is, the Enquirer these days is actually correct in most of their articles.  They became pretty rigorous after a lawsuit many years ago, and they have their act together.  They pay their sources and they're quite aggressive.  I wasn't happy when they took down John Edwards, but in my heart of hearts, I suspected they were right.

      I never thought I'd be saying this, but when I'm done with work, I think I'll be stopping by the local supermarket and snapping up a few copies of the National Enquirer for myself and friends and family.  Maybe even subscribing if the quality level is high enough.
