Day One Donkey vs. Elephant

June 9, 2008

So, tonight I begin my journey into left vs. right. The two blogs that I’m comparing are The Daily Kos and Instapundit. Let’s start with the left. Tonight the Daily Kos is discussing the economy and how McCain is following in Bush’s footsteps while Obama discusses his new economic plan. McCain is described as whining. We find out that McClellan is going to testify before a house committee about the Valerie Plame leak and Bush might have been more cosy with Abramoff than first thought. Torture at Gitmo and destroying notes taken during these sessions is another topic. Basically, it’s all about the current administration’s cover ups and mess ups. 

 

Now for Instapundit. We start with a little Michelle Obama. A rumor about a tape in which she makes racist statements. They allege that this rumor was started by Hillary Clinton’s people as sour grapes for her leaving the race. This post kills two birds with one stone. Both Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton as put in a bad light. Next we find out that free trade is good for immigrants so we should make sure that we have it. Finally, it’s discussed how Katrina victims are using FEMA. They are complaining that it’s too hot outside and they’re not motivated to work until they are forced to. So, basically the administration is right and democrats are infighting is the message. 

 

What’s interesting is that, for tonight at least, none of the blogs are about the same topics. The information is completely different on both blogs. Until we meet again tomorrow.
