Rush likesl to say his show is show prep for the MSM. When Rush says it, there is ring of truth to it. So is Is Bitsblog really show prep for the media? Well we do happen to blog of certain themes, stories, before they get picked by the more main stream media. The truth is our hit rate just isn’t enough to support such a claim. Oh, but what if it were.
Yet to but believe it were thus. Yesterday Bit wrote :
I noticed John Gibson , this evening, extending the comments that David made earlier this morning;
Boy wonder Rahm Emanuel  led the Democrats takeover of the House. For months now, he no doubt watched TV news with undisguised pleasure as Cindy Sheehan screeched at Bush
Well in the pundit war, I too can offer my pundit, who hits on themes like Mrs. Pelosi, Mrs Sheehan and to two years of fun watching the ‘rats self-destruct. Well Gibson certainly has higher ratings, his own cable news program, and writes better than mine, but my pundit is cuter and definetly has more spunk  (w/ video).
After calling herself “the most powerful woman in America,” Mrs. Pelosi flexed her right muscle like a weight lifter to much applause at an event yesterday titled a “women’s tea.”
“All right, let’s hear it for the power,” she screamed as the jubilant applause continued [emphasis original, picture added]
Unlike Lou Grant, I like spunk and Atlas has plenty of it. We may be out of power, but we’re inside the party. (H/T Pelosi photo: James Joyner, Outside the Beltway ; Sean Hackbarth,The American Mind )
