The Blog from the Core: Five Years Ahead of the Curve

Instapundit finally notices what your Humble, Faithful Blogster noticed in 2003.

From the Professor's blog today:

.... As Andrew Breitbart said on PJTV the other night, you can hardly overstate the extent to which Big Media and the Democratic Party are one and the same these days.

For five years, come next month, The Blog from the Core has been referring to the Democratic Establishment — Democrats in politics, media, and academia — as an unorganized-but-nonetheless-real agglomeration of actively partisan Democrats.

Here's the first reference, Oct. 2, 2003, an almost off-hand remark (emphasis added):

Here are Robert Novak's columns, at TownHall, concerned with the latest juggernaut aimed at the White House by the Democratic establishment (politicos and media hounds): ....

And here's the second reference, Oct. 11, 2003, at which time I thought the phrase should be capitalized (emphasis added):

.... Come next year's general election, the Democratic Establishment politicos, pundits, academics, and the editorial staff at innumerable mainstream media publications is going to be genuinely shocked when George W. Bush is re-elected....

By politicos, I mean politicians and their staffs.
