Hell Yeah! Markos!
I've said a lot of not-nice things about Markos from Daily Kos, things that stemmed from the post-election tin foil wars last November, and other things that I've perceived as attacks on the left.
I also didn't like the fact that Markos (and some other bloggers) talked up Simon Rosenberg - who supports the invasion of Iraq even though you didn't read about that when they talked him up (thankfully, Simon lost miserably in his quest to lead the DNC...no doubt thanks to bloggers and some Air America radio hosts who did tell the truth about Simon and the truth about what he didn't really do for the Hispanic American vote in 2004 which is his only claim to fame).
But Kos, right now, is going to war for the left! He's fighting back hard against the DLC, Joe Lieberman and The New Republic - let's face it - our worst enemies.
DLC, the GOP's best friend will be the shot heard round the entire Internet! Markos has discovered that the National Republican Senate Committee has a press release attacking the left, and some of it's representatives, which quotes from the sell-outs on our side: pdf file.
Markos writes, "Fact is, Lieberman, the DLC, and the so-called-liberal TNR are tools of the GOP. Whether they intended to or not, they are now typecast as the intra-party bomb throwers."
Let's hope that this has a more powerful impact than what's been launched on us by the people on the other side of our side.
I am a little upset at the Daily Kos community for not giving the attention the two 16-year-old girls who have been detained deserve. But we have gotten a lot of responses from a lot of great people from there and elsewhere. Thanks.
