Still, Erick actually raises an interesting point. Say you’re Richard Mellon Scaife, and you’re trying to prop up a failed ideology. Who do you dole out your cash to? Fox News and its sexagenarian demographic? Townhall and its endless ranks of George Will wannabees? No, you want the blogger with the tiny (but still large by wingnut standards) audience of cheeto-huffing basement dwellers. He’s the Wingnut of the Future because he’s hep to all that high-tech computer stuff. He’s the man standing athwart the internet yelling “Socialism!”
Give your money to Erick, Mr. Scaife! It’s the only way to rescue conservatism!
