Digby the star

Via Eschaton comes video of Digby at the Campaign for America's Future conference going on in Washington, D.C. While there are many fine thinkers and writers in the progressive blogosphere, Digby is often in a class by herself. (Perhaps it has something to do with hiding out and focusing on the writing? Just thinking out loud here.) In any case, she repeatedly gets to the heart of the matter when it comes to our politics and the traditional media.

Her speech is worth checking out, if you have the time. She tweaks a few noses in the pundit class, pointing out that what she does is exactly the same thing -- namely, she has opinions and she writes them down. Fun stuff.

Digby also mentions the secret code that gives us all our instructions, so now that is out of the bag, I'll confess that nobody told me about it.

UPDATE 9:50 AM -- I just checked some code at the Great Orange Master's web site, and I have this message to spread far and wide:
The raven is enjoying the cupcakes. I repeat. The raven is enjoying the cupcakes. You know what to do, just make sure Broder doesn't find out.
