How do you kill a hydra?

Matt Stoller make's an interesting observation:

The web has allowed punditry to scale dramatically, cracking open the social structure of the political establishment and force feeding the real storyline to every political junkie with a computer and phone line. When everyone's a pundit and everyone's a source, it can get pretty hard to 'create news' that isn't true. [emphasis mine - Chris]

That's the beauty of a distributed network like the Dean campaign. Traditional campaigns are easier to deal with because they usually have only one or two heads you have to attack. But the Dean campaign is a hydra. Cut one head off and ten more grow in its place.
