We had dueling activists in town over the weekend. The Netroots folks had their confab and Right Online was going on simultaneously.
The mood at the two places was decidedly different. It turns out that the lefties aren't very happy right now. Why would that be?
Just a guess -- the right-wing bloggers are unhappy that Obama is in power, but they are happier because the results of the Obama administation's ministrations have done rather a lot to confirm their worldview. The lefties are unhappy because the Obama administration's ministrations tend to contradict their worldview.
