Still searching for a Rightroots movement

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

You would've thought conservative bloggers would have tried to build a counterpart to the liberal netroots before the 2008 campaign. But this cycle has been, in our opinion, a debacle for the right side of the blogosphere which, incredibly, is still trying to build a network of bloggers, commenters, and activists that even vaguely resembles what liberals have created.

Listen in as the Rightroots tries to get off the ground.

P.S. If there's a silver lining for the right it's that it took, for liberals, the heart-breaking defeat of John Kerry in 2004, to truly energize the netroots movement. Perhaps the same will happen to the Rightroots in the wake of McCain's loss, although we have our doubts.
