Daily Kos, Atrios, and others. The "netroots," as they call themselves.
So it was unusual to see that Obama was advertising on the Drudge Report, as you can see HERE.
I read Drudge’s website frequently and have come to admire his entrepreneurship. But his politics do seem to lean to the right, and liberal Democrats — even though they may read Drudge regularly — may see Obama’s advertising there as somehow philosophically disloyal.
You can almost anticipate the netroots’ reaction, pumped up by rival campaigns: "Obama’s putting your campaign contributions in the pocket of one of the conservatives who tried to bring down Bill Clinton!"
On the other hand, that’s where the eyeballs are, right?
I should point out that it’s the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton that actually claims to have a symbiotic relationship with Mr. Drudge these days (read more on that HERE)… knocking a big Obama speech off the front page by leaking him some impressive fundraising statistics earlier this year.
UPDATE: Obama spox Bill Burton says: "Even if it’s true, it wasn’t intentional, the site isn’t on the approved list of sites we advertise on."
