Man. Rick Perlstein sure does love blogs and this isn’t the first time he’s dedicated a column to the subject. So where’s the Perlstein blog (or, perhaps, perlslog), damnit? RickPerlstein.org looks like it was created in 1998. They’re not hard to set up.
At any rate, I’m not sure how generalizable the FireDogLake/Plame trial experience really is, but the initial point about Jay Carney blundering through recent political history and then lashing out at people who noted his errors really is revelatory.
