No love for Iran sanctions

What's the difference between old media and new media? No really. I don't know anymore. I'm asking. I'm so old I remember when blogs were going to pave the way for a new focus on hard news, but I look at Memeorandum and the deal the White House brokered on new Iran sanctions looks like a pretty "big f**king deal" to me. I mean there was all kinds of predicting going on proclaiming Obama was never going to get a deal for sanctions after Iran offered to sell its uranium. But they got "Britain, France, Russia and China — the five permanent, veto-wielding members of the Security Council — plus Germany," to sign on.

After hundreds of blogs about Obama bowing and predicting his low key diplomacy approach to foreign policy was going to fail, or not, here's proof positive that statesmanship works where thuggery didn't, and no one is talking about it.

So what was the big buzz on the important blogs today, you ask? Blumenthal's Vietnam war slip-up and snark about Souder's affair. In other words, gossip and instant outrage... Sad.
