Our president, Bob Dornan - WonketteIf you write fawning crap about politicians on your blog, apparently those politicians will give you huge piles of money to “keep up the good work.” Who knew?

This one dude who posts on liberal sites got $180,000 for blogging about Sherrod Brown and Mark Warner. Another dude got $21,000 from Ned Lamont for two months of blogging.

We’ve been going about this all wrong.
