There’s been a little tizzy in the blogosphere over Newsweek’s hiring of Markos Moulitsas Zuniga on the left and Karl Rove on the right as campaign commentators/contributors.

I wouldn’t get too worked up about it. The fact that they both accepted the invitation shows they share a need for mainstream approbation and a common belief that writing for a circulation-losing, influence-dwindling publication is worth their time.

I predict they’ll write preemptively safe, toned-down pieces to match expectations of MSM respectability–and they’ll save any truly newsworthy, interesting insights for their own home bases (dKos for Kos, conservative talk radio/Fox/etc. for Rove).

No “exploding heads.” Just heads nodding off…
