A Small, Fast World

John Fund today discusses the impact of the internet on the Miers nomination. Blogs, internet newspaper sites, and blast emails set in motion an infinite snowball before any spin was allowed to form.

I note that even before the announcement of Alito’s nomination, reactions were available online. Did you know for example, that the nickname “Scalito” is racist? The DNC has also already criticized him for a “Long History Of States Rights, Anti-Civil Rights, And Anti-Immigrant Rulings.” Whoa, he's for States' Rights?

I’ve been a member of the internet community for 10 years now, and it has never looked better. Virtual life is addictive; virtual politics is a scream.
