Wedge Politics FAIL #3: Who hates liberal bloggers?
At this point, it's pretty obvious that Dana Loesch got some kind of memo or was on a conference call where she was told to stop repeating the same right-wing drivel she's been spouting the last four months and instead try to think up creative ideas for splitting the coalitions that helped Democrats to win the last election. She first tried to drive a wedge between the White House and the LGBT community, then between working people and unions, and finally she's claiming that the White House hates liberal bloggers. Of course, there's absolutely no reason to believe that the quote about liberal bloggers actually represents the views of the White House, so Loesch is wrong yet again. What's more interesting, however, is that there was such a dramatic shift in her rhetoric in just a single day. This seems to be a hint of the Republican strategy for the 2010 elections.
