Talk about your Unholy Alliance

From Grumbles:
"The political oligarchy of this country, both left and right, fears the rise of the modern pamphleteer [read blogger] as much as the media elite does. The symbiotic relationship between politician and journalist has created a realm of unreality where real concerns of real people are never discussed. Instead we hear the "talking points" of this camp or that as they strive to maintain their power, influence and position in the "Great Game" of Washington, D.C. It is not enough to toss stones at the Mainstream Media and blame the ills of this discourse on them. For decades now our political oligarchy has aided and abetted them in controlling what is broadcast or printed for our consumption. Both sides have fawned on each other like a pimply teenager dating a supermodel."
Eventually, the beergoggles have to come off, one would think.
