Bill Conlin: Gas the bloggers

Pardon my ignorance here, but I don't follow sports and have no idea who Bill Conlin is. Apparently he's not to fond of the blogospere though:
"The only positive thing I can think of about Hitler's time on earth-I'm sure he would have eliminated all bloggers. In Colonial times, bloggers were called "Pamphleteers." They hung on street corners handing them out to passersby. Now, they hang out on electronic street corners, hoping somebody mouses on to their pretentious sites. Different medium, same MO. Shakespeare accidentally summed up the genre best with these words from a MacBeth soliloquy: ". . .a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. . .""
I'm pretty sure he's right though. I just don't see Hitler as a BoingBoing type of fellow.
