Echo Chambers

Chris Muir's cartoon for today (Dec 12, 2005) really got me laughing. I'd been talking to a friend recently about the "echo chambers" -- yes, we used that word -- that liberals seem to hang out in and how that leads to their continual babbling of the party mantras even in the face of -- perhaps especially in the face of -- evidence to the contrary.

You know, BushHiltlerLiedHalliburtonAbuGhraibBloodForOilQuagmire ...... that sort of thing.

I guess the Times thinks Liberal blogs are shining examples of open, healthy gardens of diverse opinion.

Of course, when you've pre-defined which opinions are "diverse" and which are not, it makes it all the easier.
