Instapundit is twelve years old today, and linked to the site’s beginning. I started reading Insty right after 9/11. The very first post was about the government vs. the monopolistic music industry.
With care, the administration could launch an assault that would split artists from studios and labels, further dividing and demoralizing a major source of Democratic support — and maybe even splitting off some people who will decide they like the Republicans after all. Is Bush that smart? Is Ashcroft? Is Karl Rove? Stay tuned.
Since then we’ve learned “no, the Republicans aren’t smart, ever.” It would bother me, if the GOP establishment wasn’t just as venal and tyrannical as the entire Democratic Party.
Anyway…congrats, Prof. Reynolds!
