Well, Republicans may have
made a lot of mistakes in the last couple of years, but they're
generally not stupid. I predicted months ago that Republicans would
soon begin combing the far-left hate-blog Daily Kos as part of
their opposition research for the upcoming elections. They would be
idiots not to. Prominent Democrats from all over the country have
openly aligned with Markos and his group of Blame America First
defeatists. Voters have every right to know that information before
they walk into the voting booth.

Martin Peretz wrote an excellent editorial Monday noting that Connecticut's would-be Senator Ned Lamont is Karl Rove's dream Democrat:
shallow to the extreme, a one-trick pony candidate who displays all the
depth of a rainpuddle when it comes to the situations in places like
Iraq and Iran.

All of that is quite true of course. But Peretz left out the most
important fact about Ned Lamont: he's nothing but the lapdog of the
most hateful, unhinged fringe leftists in the blogosphere, like Jane
Hamsher and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga.

Mark Finkelstein notes that Markos Moulitsas Zúniga is strangely coy about his close personal friendship and tireless promotion of his lapdog Ned Lamont.
Why might that be? Hmm, let me think: could it be that if he
acknowledged the relationship openly, Ned Lamont might have to answer
for so many of the vicious, hateful, and just plain lunatic fringe
stuff that appears regularly on his blogger-buddy web sites?
