At the National Review, Byron York pays tribute to YearlyKos, in a surprisingly moderate tone. Of course, he has reason to mention it: he "predicted" the rise of a "Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy" back in 2004. York quotes Markos of Daily Kos, who said at the time that York's analysis was "about 2 - 5 years too early." As he now observes, the progressive netroots -- who never had as far to go as the Goldwater conservative movementeers -- might now properly lay claim to a certain vastness. He also suggests that we've been helped along the way by Republican blunders, the war chief among them, and I don't disagree -- though I happen to think we're more in tune with the American public than are the conservatives on a pretty broad range of issues.
