And the Blogosphere Yawned
Former California Gubernatorial Candidate Arianna Huffington, a woman who makes Arnold sound like an Oxford English Professor, has launched herself into the blogosphere with The Huffington Post. Evidently there she gathers the left wing luminaries (Joe Scarborough - what the hell were you thinking?) and gives them a space where they can pontificate to the collective contentedness of their bleeding hearts.
Well, early reviews are in, and if LA Weekly's Nikki Finke, Arianna should keep her day job of preening before whatever camera she can put herself in front of. Highlights from Finke's review:
What Arianna Huffington's bizarre guru-cult association, 180-degree conservative-to-liberal conversion, and failed run in the California gubernatorial-recall race couldn't accomplish, her blog has now done: She is finally played out publicly. This Web-site venture is the sort of failure that is simply unsurvivable, because of all the advance publicity touting its success as inevitable. Her blog is such a bomb that it's the box-office equivalent of Gigli, Ishtar and Heaven's Gate rolled into one.Ouch.
Well, if Arianna is having that much of a problem with the Hollywierd crowd, wait till the dreaded Market Forces get a chance to work on her.
