Loesch To Speak To Quincy Tea Party, As Right-Side New Media Matures
As a long time observer of and participant in Right-side new media, there are some big changes coming together. Dana Loesch, among others, represents that change. It's as much a maturing, as it is remaining fresh and young. Check out the Cedra Crenshaw video below.

Early on, it was often a big slice of angry ranting, combined with a more pedestrian repeating of the GOP meme of the day. Many of those elements still exist, but there's something else going on.
Matt Lewis' Top 25 Twitter list typifies some of these folks, there are many more, like my friend Sissy Willis, who is a must follow and blogs here on occasion, as she's an important voice for a particular segment of the GOP base. The movement isn't one thing, it's made up of many parts, or factions.
Personalities and blogs are emerging that are as fresh, as they are mature and capable of presenting a positive, engaging voice for the Right-side movement. A good portion of it is female, like Cubachi and Melissa Clouthier, mentioned on Lewis' Twitter list. There are many voices and personalities, I don't mean to slight any one.
Add in Andrew Breitbart's big investment in the Right on line, Pajamas TV, The Daily Caller, The Tea Party movement mostly on the ground, but connected in – and one can see a serious, yet occasionally snarky, fun and attractive, yet substantive movement taking shape out here. I believe, as I've always believed, that such a movement is going to bring big and positive changes to America. And it's exciting and rewarding to feel a part of it at this critical point in the political history of America.
We may still do Independence Day the old fashion way, but we're beginning to do it with a bigger, fresher bang and voice than do some existing old line, more establishment GOP-supporting media outlets – online and off. To my mind, that is the real Right-side grassroots new media, or Right on line today. And I believe it means good things ahead for us and Americans everywhere.
