Class Dismissed

No, I don't think David Broder's sudden decision to notice that maybe everything isn't right outside of his neighborhood is going to impact much. The country doesn't care what David Broder thinks. He reflects the conventional wisdom of his clique back at them. That's his audience.

Once upon a time that clique had power and influence. They imagine they still do, but it's fading, and not because of the rising power of blogofascism. It's because the Bush administration doesn't care what the Grand Old Men of Washington think. They've made that perfectly clear.
