A warning to Internet Catholics
If the Catholic blog you visit spends more time trashing political figures than talking about, well, anything else, you might want to consider a different blogging experience for a while. I say this as I watch the implosion of Dinesh D'Souza play out on certain blogs. There's a non-Christian way to respond to such scandals, there is a Christian way, and there is a politically driven way. If you spend too much time wallowing about the world of politics, your response might end up sounding as if it is influenced not by Christian tradition, but by the desire to score political points at the expense of a fellow brother in Christ who has fallen.
