Someone else (and I regret forgetting who) has mentioned the humorous fact that Glenn Reynolds’s newly released book, An Army of Davids, is far outselling co-author Markos Moulitsas Zuniga’s (the Daily Kos himself) Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Politics. The Daily Kos's website receives four times more visitors than the Instapundit’s. And yet, Reynolds’s work currently ranks #466 and Zuniga’s comes in at #1,823. What are we to think of these figures? Does this indicate that Reynolds’s audience is better read? Are they the type of people who actually study an issue before shooting off their mouths? Is it possible that many of the Daily Kos kids might even be marginally illiterate?

What’s in a political name?
