Just to add a bit to Cliff's post on Dangerstein's posts. First, I find it hilarious that he cannot stop trying to attack the netroots. He has consistently tried to portray them as an albatross to the Democratic cause, even after the election. Danny boy, go ask any political consultant or staffer, or even officeholders, who is more of a problem for the Democrats - Lieberman or the Netroots, and see what they say.
Second, he continues to amaze me in his circular logic. He attacks the netroots in general for their hostility, lumping all their statements together, then he says this
"It also goes to show just how deeply most liberal bloggers believe that Republicans and conservative are morally illegitimate, and as such, any criticism or argument made by the other side is on its face corrupt and dismissible. If it is said by Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who has a history of controversial statements himself, it automatically becomes invalid, no matter the inherent integrity of the underlying proposition."
Uh, Danny, couldn't the same thing be said about you and your hatred of the Netroots?
Bottom line is, Dan helped elect the one man who does more on a day to day basis to undermine the Democratic Party than anyone else not named Rove. And yet he consistently attacks those who tried desperately to build a winner in 2006 and beyond. The Netroots might not be perfect, but they certainly offer a whole lot more to the Democratic party than Lieberman, or Dan Gerstein for that matter.
NOTE FROM CLIFF: That great post on Dangerstein was the work of the very talented Paddy, not me. She gets the credit.
