Liebermans' Right Hand Guy Says Bloggers Are Teh MEAN!!!!

And loud, and they curse and make fun of people!! Oy.

Dan Gerstein writing for an ever declining Politico

Nor did they ever stop to think how hollow and hypocritical it sounded for the same people who ravaged George Allen, for his “macaca” moment in last year’s Virginia Senate campaign to cry “free speech” when confronted with a far more nasty, vulgar, and hurtful display of prejudice from two of their own.

Instead, right until the bitter end, most liberal bloggers responded in their familiar mode – by lashing out at their critics and trying to marginalize them. This was, in their eyes, purely a manufactured controversy by the “right-wing smear machine” and a cynical attempt to silence and marginalize the Netroots.


First Danny hun, George Allen was a CANDIDATE. Melissa & Amanda were gonna write PR posts on a blog. Hmmmm, you see a difference here? I know I do!!!

Second, where's the outrage over the man behind the "Call Me" anti-Ford ads working for McCain? Or any one of the many other fringe employees for Republican candidates?

THAT'S the kind of stuff that leads us to theorize it's a RIGHT WING SMEAR MACHINE ATTEMPT TO SILENCE AND MARGINALIZE THE NETROOTS!!!

Because it is Dan, it really truly is.

And let me quote myself from the comment I left at Politico on your article.

And hey!!
Whatever happened to that lawsuit about the Lamont people "attacking" your website? If you're not smart enough to set up a decent website for a senatorial candidate, I'm not paying attention to the rest of the stuff you claim to be an expert on.

Not to mention that the recent attack of those bloggers was spearheaded by a right wing conservative religious group that violated their tax code!! Hello IRS? Are ya there? Can you say 501 (c) 3 ??????

Ok, I just laughed so hard that I think I wet myself, and that was after reading only the caption! I was going to suggest a weekly "Depends Award" (for those who cry "it's not fair" - Cliff knows who I'm talking about) for this site, but I think I'd be the first recipient!

sandroofthe picture fits the Republican position on the resolution
this clown is against the surge but opposed the resolution because she didn't want to help the Democrats actually stop the surge

Horay! DANGERSTEIN is here to lecture all of us about blogs. Especially given his stand up job on running the Joe2006 blog.
Hey, has Dan ever appologized for the website hacking lie he was spreading on election day? Also, what's Dans response to Joe Lieberman going back on his campaign pledge to investigate Katrina failures? Also, can someone repost the time where Dan stated that Joe Lieberman beats his wife? That was comedy gold!
