Do progressives believe the stuff that comes out of their mouths?

No joke:  During the closing keynote speech at Netroots Nation, Van Jones reportedly told a roomful of starry-eyed progressive activists that they ‘checkmated’ conservative radio and created the blogosphere.

We’re pretty sure Van Jones and his audience don’t know what “checkmated” means. By the way, R.I.P Air America.

Well, if progressives invented the blogosphere, they sure lost control of it pretty quickly. Kinda like a liberal hashtag.

“Let’s get ’em”? New tone, Van. New tone.

And good luck with that. We love the smell of progressive desperation in the afternoon.
