Rightwing Shills

Thanks Without you we wouldn't have such a marvellously seedy example of how the blogging Right is bereft of its own ideas and must instead shill for paid professionals who use them to make sure the hordes of unthinking drones stay "on message".

All of these appeared exactly 28 minutes ago.

Now, who was it that was supposed, according to the Right, to not have their own ideas? As any progressive will tell you, getting Lefty bloggers to stay "on message" is like herding cats - but that's because we can all think for ourselves. These shills can't even think up their own headlines.

The blogging Right - Parrots, not Pundits.
