Rothenberg v. Lefty Bloggers

Stuart Rothenberg of Roll Call bags on lefty blogs for writing about House races saying (bloggers) "seem to believe that they know more about House campaigns than do the professionals."

At the risk of defending the neo-Marxists, bloggers often times do know better than the professionals. DvK has a documented success rate predicting Senate contests at a much higher rate than Charlie Cook, for instance. And as Eric Black of the Star Tribune could document, in 2002 I was perfect on every Senate race.

Rothenberg, Cook, Sabato et al still have important contributions to make. Roll Call is a "go-to" destination for DvK. Even so, open source prognosticating, fundraising and pontificating (political blogging) deserves more than a pat on the head from Mr. Rothenberg.

Yes, even Kos.
