Sooper Sekret Message To Karl Rove
Please tell your plants in MoveOn.org to tone it down a bit before our cover is blown completely:
Group's TV ad uses storm's aftermath to target Roberts
The televised images of poverty-stricken evacuees from Hurricane Katrina are part of a provocative, last-minute effort by a liberal interest group to divert federal Judge John Roberts' path to confirmation as chief justice.
I mean, c'mon now.
UPDATE: And this Government Bombed the Levee thing? Now you're just showing off!

Who ever thought hypoxia could be the defining characteristic of an entire political organization?
I'm losing all respect for the Democrats (laughs cynically).
Seriously. Consider that the Republican party lost the House and Senate for forty years
and they never got anywhere near this f'ing crazy. These guys have been out of power for eleven years and they're crazier than -- hell, I don't even have a Dan-Rather-style-down-home expression for it. Crazier than a polecat that got into Dan's private stash of mescaline and Jack Daniels. Crazier than anything, I guess. There aren't words for this crazy.
And I'd love to credit Rove, but no one is that evil and brilliant. It has to self-inflicted.
There aren't words for this crazy.
Yes, there are. the words are "Molly Ivins".
To be fair to the left side (I know its hard) it is unlikely that this represents anything near mainstream left thought. Unless you would like to have all right wing thought summed up by Pat Robertson clones screaming that Katrina was punishment for the abortion clinics in NO (actual claim)...
True enough. You make a fair point.
The thing is, the Kossacks, et al. did have the muscle to get Dean made party chair, due to all the "crazy blog money" that he was (supposedly) able to raise. While the Kossacks are not the mainstream, my fear is that they are a reliable indicator of where the left is headed.
Or, alternatively, maybe the left wing of the Democratic party has always been this crazy, and now we simply have better tools for reaching beneath the tin foil hats and seeing what's going on inside.
I can't tell anymore. A little of both, maybe?
Buh-lieve me, I would give anything to see the DNC stand up, tell these people to STFU, and engage in legitimate debate with the Right. The trouble is that the Kossacks appear to be gaining control of both the agenda and the message.
I think there is going to be one hell of an ugly intra-party war before '08, Mainstream vs. Moonbat. I used to think the mainstream would be able to squash the fringe pretty easily when it had to (and I think Hillary has been counting on this), but now I'm not so sure anymore.
What are these people smoking, and have they got any more?
Holy overweening moonbattery, Batman!
Yeah, they're not everyone on the Left. But Kos, MoveOn and their crowd are more "Pat Robertson in 1988" than "Pat Robertson in 2005" in terms of influence.
