Sign of the Times

posted by on April 2 at 8:36 AM

This is encouraging news:

In February, The Huffington Post drew 3.7 million unique visitors, according to Nielsen Online, for the first time beating out The Drudge Report, the conservative tip sheet with which The Post is often compared.

the conservative tip sheet which is reporting that Obama leads Hillary in Pennsylvania polling for the first time.

more hits on HuffPo than Drudge.
more viewers on CNN primetime than Fox "News".
Way more Democrat primary voters than Republican.

McCain will still win. American voters suck.

I frequently read some ridiculous comments from conservatives at the HuffPo.

Just because a liberal website is getting more hits doesn't mean that all those hits are from rational people.

Well, liberals read Drudge too, @3 (some Sloggers seem to like it, for reasons I don't understand).

good point, tsm.

and mike @ 2, mccain won't win because of american voters, he will win because of diebold ("i will do everything i can to make sure you win") voting machines. god, i hope i'm wrong about that.

When the article mentions The Post, is it referring to Washington Post, NY Post or just the post?

@ 5: technically true, but dieblod wouldn't be able to cheat if the voters made it a landslide. That's the right's whole strategy: make it close enough to cheat.

What is this Drudge thing of which you speak?

Is it some place that neocons go to die, that can't survive the forty year trek into the wilderness this coming November?
