Conservative bloggers who have observed our side lagging a bit in the world of Internet political opinion should consider encouraging this trend:
In a move that might make some people scratch their heads, a loosely formed coalition of left-leaning bloggers is trying to band together to form a labor union it hopes will help members receive health insurance, conduct collective bargaining or even set professional standards.
Not much could do more to slow the productivity of Lefty blogging and to raise costs for its wealthy benefactors than cyber-unionization. I’m waiting for the first Colorado union blog shop to open up and to expel non-union writers or to extract fees from them. Or what about this tantalizing possibility as a future headline: “Liberal bloggers on strike.”
This is the sort of development that could really level the playing field.
