Michael Brendan Dougherty (The Slurve, National Review) and Daniel Strauss (Politico)

On The Score, Daniel and Michael discuss what to do when your favorite sports team is terrible. They link the rise of the stathead and the decline of old media. Turning to politics, Daniel talks about the strange way Chris Christie has set himself against the rising tide of libertarianism in the GOP. Michael distinguishes between a broad trend of libertarianism in American society versus a more narrow and ideological one in politics. Michael brings up his new love for fringe political bloggers and how they’ve preserved an earlier blogging culture. They examine the Jack Hunter/Southern Avenger imbroglio as an example of the Internet’s power to punish those with fringe opinions. Should we fear the glare of the Internet spotlight more than Obama’s NSA?
