POLITICO: GOP losing the new-media war. Yes. McCain’s campaign is good at blogger outreach, but that’s one bright spot against an otherwise unrelieved landscape of how-we-did-it-last-time. It’s just more of the staleness and lack of creativity that has marked the GOP for the last couple of election cycles.

Of course, the press is much more willing to be influenced by leftie alternative-media. See Patrick Hynes on The Leftwing Blog-Leftwing Media Nexus.

UPDATE: Reader C.J. Burch emails: “To win elections the Republicans are going to have to defeat the media…not co-opt it. That they can’t figure that out is a sign that their judgement is dangerously suspect.”
