@lancestrate will appreciate Jon Stewart's "eviscerating" of the blogosphere. Those pesky words! http://tiny.cc/eooSY #generalsemantics
For those of you unfamiliar with tweet-talk, that last bit is called a hashtag, and it functions on Twitter the ways that labels function on blogger, and tags elsewhere, as a kind of indexing of posts or items. So, Mike was indicating that this item was relevant for general semantics (which also means its relevant for media ecology, and Mike is well versed in both).
The Blogs Must Be Crazy
According to the blog headlines, Jon is a blood-crazed madman and Rachel Maddow is an eviscerating machine.

Exaggeration! Overstatement! Hyperbole! Oh my! Clearly, the blog is not the territory! And like the oral singers of tales of old, as Walter Ong would point out, the psychodynamics of these blogists (as opposed to yours truly, of course) include a tendency towards agonistically toned content!
Thanks, Mike! If anyone should ever come along and eviscerate you, I solemnly vow, before all gods crazy and sane, to avenge you!
