Meet the New Bosses

It was bound to happen.

The major bloggers, the big guns, so to speak, did however, go the way of their predecessors in a relatively short period of time.

We don't have any bosses around here. No one tells us what we can write, when or about whom. Very little is out-of-bounds.

We like it like that. The true revolution will be leaderless for the most part. That is at it should be, at this point in our history.

Meet the New Bosses:

Last June, Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga, former soldier, one-time Reagan Republican, and proprietor of the wildly successful liberal blog Daily Kos, sent an email to an invitation-only listserv known as Townhouse. Consisting of some 300 liberal bloggers, journalists, activists, and consultants, the list was an outgrowth of weekly strategy sessions held at a D.C. bar—a forum for brainstorming on issues and tactics, and a means of creating a 'unified message,' as Moulitsas later put it. Its members were bound by one main rule: Nothing from the list was to be quoted or distributed, which, this being politics, meant that a leak was bound to happen.
