Why no conservative Kos?

From NBC's Mark Murray
Conservative blogger Dean Barnett asks this interesting question in the Weekly Standard: Why isn't there a conservative version of liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas or his blog Daily Kos -- at least in terms of influence and power?

Our quick answers to this question: 1) because the Republican Party is typically a top-down organization, which isn't necessarily a conducive environment for an uncontrollable blogger like Kos; and 2) the GOP has controlled the White House in these last six-plus years, and folks like Kos sprouted when the Democrats were out of power -- much like conservative radio flourishing during the Clinton years.

Blogger David Weigel seems to agree with the top-down answer. What are your thoughts?
