EXPERTS INCLUDING US AGREE THAT SUCCESS IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY BECAUSE MITCH McCONNELL AND JIM DeMINT PRETTY MUCH SUCK
FITSNews – January 8, 2007 – In yet another sign that the blogosphere is here to stay as a legitimate news medium, U.S. Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim DeMint have decided to dust off their collection of Huey Lewis & The News records and get their “hip” on. Because to these two guys, there’s a good chance that Huey Lewis’ music is, you know, pushing the envelope.
Anyway, Town Hall had a neat story Saturday on the fact that both McConnell and DeMint have hired staffers to focus on “New Media,” in other words outlets just like FITSNews.
The only problem with this brilliant plan is that McConnell is a complete fuddy-duddy and DeMint is a quintessential chopper, meaning that yeah, they both pretty much suck. Either one of them has about the same chance of becoming “hip” as Sic Willie has of marrying Reese Witherspoon.
Seriously, guys. Getting your swerve on in the blogosphere is NOT about going online and filling it up with a bunch of your boring ass gobbledygook about the subcommittee of the select committee on governmental oversight and suspending debate on the supplemental appropriations for the Department of Whatever.
Because no one cares.
Unless Mitch McConnell is going to announce the formation of a gansta rap trio called McSniggity (with Senators John McCain and Claire McKaskill) or Jim DeMint is going to confirm that he impregnated Fergie (while doing the “London Bridge”), what exactly is the point here, boys?
Here’s some free advice: Give all that taxpayer money you just spent hiring “New Media” professionals back to the Treasury and stick to what you’re good at: Tim Russert and the Weekly Standard.
Of course if you wanna drop some of that taxpayer largesse on a little FITSNews‘ advertising … well now, that’s a different story altogether.
