Power bloggers v. power brokers

Well, I was amused at The Times’ story today on how the Democrats’ and netroots’ excommunication of Joseph Lieberman only put him in the catbird seat as the man who can tilt the Senate to one party or the other. I said that would be the case here.

And now we also have The Times reporting that Trent Lott is back in a position of party leadership, despite being the first scalp on bloggers’ belts.

So are bloggers not as powerful as they/we thought? Well, politics aren’t so easily reformed.
