Dail Kos and the DLC

There's no real way to put a nice gloss on this:
Ultimately, this is the modern DLC -- an aider and abettor of Right-wing smear attacks against Democrats. They make the same arguments, use the same language, and revel in their attacks on those elements of the Democratic Party that seem to cause them no small embarrassment.

Two more weeks, folks, before we take them on, head on.

No calls for a truce will be brooked. The DLC has used those pauses in the past to bide their time between offensives. Appeals to party unity will fall on deaf ears (it's summer of a non-election year, the perfect time to sort out internal disagreements).

We need to make the DLC radioactive. And we will. With everyone's help, we really can. Stay tuned.

Of course, with everyone's help, Markos Moulitsas was going to make Howard Dean president.

Bonus: I notice that the New York Times seems to be intermittently running this ad at the bottom of the Daily Kos RSS feed. They sure know their target demographic!

Um...are any old Soviet nukes still unaccounted for?

Yet there is no embarassment at the similarity between bin Laden's and Michael Moore's rhetoric about America.

How truly odd.

Kos is running about what now for candidates backed versus winners? 0-10, 0-12 maybe?

Radioactive indeed...

Only he doesn't seem to realize who it is becomes radioactive when TheKosCrew™ shows up.

Oh fer sixteen, I think, after backing Hackett in Ohio. But hey, they sense seismic shifts that other mere mortals can't feel, so give 'em some kind of credit.

Did you read the comments section?? Good Lord, one poster was talking about teaming up with Al Jazeera. Now that's a winner!
