Re: Suckage: Cronkite's quote is telling:
This gives me a chance to sound off with a few words or a long editorial. It’s a medium that is new and interesting, and I thought I’d have some fun.

I can't wait for the first time a couple thousand bloggers come storming down on Cronkite for a making a factual error, intentional or not. The term "Fisking" may get replaced (although Cronkite's name doesn't lend itself to the phrase quite as well...perhaps "taking a Cronkite" will catch on as a euphamism for a particular bodily function).

Anyway, pundits from both sides who thought the blogosphere was powerless, or a place to have some fun, have learned otherwise. Bill O'Reilly, white courtesy phone. Dan Rather, check with your lawyer. Paul Krugman, we have a few questions for you.

And each of them is more capable of engaging in the debate than Warren Beatty and Nora Ephron.

For bodily functions, no name will ever replace the great Mike Dukakis, as in:

"Find a rest stop quickly -- I have to Dukakis!"

In mixed company, just say you're "going to Mike's house."
