Talk about dueling blogs! Progressive bloggers are holding their annual conference (Netroots Nation, formerly YearlyKos) right next door to the conservative bloggers' convention (RightOnline). The director of RightOnline and the Editor-in-chief of RedState.com offer their insights about the power of the Internet. How has the political landscape changed thanks to blogging? What issues are hot online right now? (Immigration anyone?) The Democrats used online networking to their advantage in 2008... so how can conservatives use the Web to motivate the voting masses? Share your thoughts below.
The 2010 RightOnline Conference runs July 23-24 at the Venetian. It's held by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation. Speakers will include Judge Andrew Napolitano, Sharron Angle, and Representatives Mike Pence and Michelle Bachmann, among others.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
