Lunch Break: A Big Day for Blogging
Rapper The Game has responded to blogger Marc Lynch's analysis of how The Game should handle his feud with Jay-Z. As Spencer Ackerman writes, it's not a wise response: The Game lashes out at Lynch, which runs the risk of radicalizing not only Lynch himself, but the elites who listen to Lynch. And The Game needs all the support he can get right now.
That said, engagement -- even hostile engagement -- is more than Jay-Z has offered. The Game has at least taken a first step towards opening a potential channel of communication with Lynch. The initial message wasn't helpful to The Game's cause, but the next could be, and Lynch and his constituents are now paying a lot of attention to The Game. So maybe this is all strategy: The Game signals that he's willing to listen even as he doesn't weaken himself by telegraphing a desire for an alliance with political bloggers.
In any case, today's Lunch Break comes from The Game.
