Now that blogs have been around a while, let's coin a new term: the blog mob. Reading the hundreds of vitriol-laden attacks over my last blog (Bush Disarms Comedy Central's Colbert) makes me feel like a Danish cartoonist who has wandered into a Taliban parade.
Insulting the Prophet is one thing, but insulting Stephen Colbert, the patron saint of the piously correct left! That's really blasphemy. Doesn't this blog mobbery alarm anyone else? It can't be such a good thing if this is where the heralded evolution of the new media is leading.
