Can you nazme any big ones that rolled out in late '05 or during '06? I can only think of Breitbart.com.
God no, I can't....just speculating.....I read Real Clear Politics, Little Green Footballs, Redstate and Captain's Quarters though....all older then 2005
A lot of those other sites are interesting to visit, but Free Republic is the "home" site that conservatives return to. As far as the falling numbers, I hate to say it but I sense a certain malaise (or boredom?) that may be coincidental with the final years of an eight-year Republican Presidency. I have a feeling things will heat up again when the campaign season hits full stride.
