Van Jones: Progressives created the blogosphere and ‘checkmated’ right-wing radio

Do progressives believe the stuff that comes out of their mouths?

From my TL I see @VanJones68 is practicing verbal masturbation at #NN12 #tcot

No joke:  During the closing keynote speech at Netroots Nation, Van Jones reportedly told a roomful of starry-eyed progressive activists that they ‘checkmated’ conservative radio and created the blogosphere.

@VanJones68: You shut down RW radio. No politician did that 4 you. You did it yourselves. You need to remind readers of the power THEY have.

We’re pretty sure Van Jones and his audience don’t know what “checkmated” means. By the way, R.I.P Air America.

I think Van Jones just said that liberals created the blogosphere. Interesting. #AlGoreCreatedtheInternetToo

Well, if progressives invented the blogosphere, they sure lost control of it pretty quickly. Kinda like a liberal hashtag.

@VanJones68 – Bloggers, take yourself more seriously, don't depress and demoralize. Fight back! Somebody has to stand up! Let's Get Em #nn12

“Let’s get ‘em”? New tone, Van. New tone.

And good luck with that. We love the smell of progressive desperation in the afternoon.
