but i'd rather be alive:
Even more impressive than Obama's victory speech is this. A friend who went to Horry County to work for Obama referenced it in a very-early-morning text message, and I urge you to read every word. Especially if you work in the media.

It would be a good article if it were about the media in general, but it commits the classic error of accusing the "'progressive' blogosphere" of something without actually providing any instances of them doing so. Maybe the poster reads different blogs to me, but pretty much every one I read favours Obama over Clinton and most have gone out of their way to criticise race based analysis of the primary. The only "blogger" that I saw mentioned in the comments was Mickey Kaus, who hasn't been considered "progressive" for at least a decade.
