Anti-Blog Vaccine?

Britain’s Guardian has asked Glenn Reynolds to do a weekly column in the run-up to the election. Is this an inoculation against blog attacks? Given what’s recently happened to CBS, you couldn’t blame them. And maybe there’s a little of that in this case. Cooptation, after all, is one of the oldest and most successful strategies. Still, it’s great to see Glenn giving a lesson in Jacksonianism to the smart set in Chelsea. They need it. I’ll be watching these columns as they go along. And the reaction to them, particularly across The Pond. Maybe our frequent commenter PeterUK can keep us apprised.
