What will happen to the Dean blogs?

Most blogs are created with the idea that they will be around for awhile. What about the Dean Blogs? They were created with a purpose in mind. A purpose, by the way, that is soon to come to an abrupt halt. Dean doesn't seem to be doing too well in the primaries. But how can that be? Is not Dean the darling of the common man --the blogger?

One political observer put things in perspective with the Deaners when he noted, "how do you turn 500,000 bloggers into 50 million voters?" In other words, in the scheme of things all the action and all the excitement of the "Dean blog phenomenon" is about to collapse under it's own inflated flatulence.

Will the Deaners pull together and stand united behind a new "front runner" that was or will be a front runner because of blogging? I sincerely doubt it.

The whole "blog behind the man" idea was a good deal of bogus hype that the mainstream media bought into --hook, line and sinker.

Deaners, you're all about to have to find new hobbies as the primaries reveal that self-important blogs do not a president make.
