Impactful values?

Berkeley blogger Markos Moulitsas Zuniga offers bits of wisdom in a fun interview with the Berkeley Daily Planet:

“The most impactful activism was Cindy Sheehan, and it was the bloggers who promoted her first. She gave the media a hook, a story to tell.”
Impactful? Actually, I was waxing impactfully about her just the other day.

But I should probably take Cindy Sheehan more seriously than I have. My values are probably out of kilter.

Kos also weighs in on how values impact the the benefit of the doubt:

“People are willing to overlook their political difference if you talk about values. Bush talked in the language of values, so people were willing to give him the benefit of the doubt,” he said.
Sigh.

It never worked for me.
