Socialist wanting to control the blogosphere

Looks like the some of the Daily Kos (the big US democrats blog) brigade want to start a Blog union with benefits and code of ethics etc. Other then the fact that bloggers are in-essence self-employed more IBEC then SIPTU these people are taking blogging far to seriously. So who will want to be Arthur Scargill? Also they was talk of nothing letting right-wing bloggers in . Is America really this divided? I wrote about the Next American Civil War a year or 2 ago and I still get the odd comment that scares me. Cop on people blogging is a hobby.

Well, it's more than a hobby for the people who are making their living at it.

Still, not sure the world needs any more unions. A blog shop steward - the mind boggles.

Yeah, really, right.

Actually, I believe that this was treated as more of an in-joke, the average wingnut blogger making our home-grown variety (the ones who 'retired' with the FI and others) look positively reasonable by comparison.
