George Eliot on blogging

I've recently looked at some right-wing blogs (and some left-wing blogs)...

With apologies to George Eliot:

To judge from their writings, there are certain bloggers who think that an amazing ignorance, both of science and of life, is the best possible qualification for forming an opinion on the knottiest moral and speculative questions. Apparently, their recipe for solving all such difficulties is something like this: -Take a blogger's head, stuff it with a smattering of philosophy and literature chopped small, and with false notions of society baked hard, let it hang over a desk a few hours every day, and serve up hot in feeble English, when not required.
