The Progressive Netroots Suck

  Don't blame nanobot. I'm only the messenger. Check here: Matt Ygelsias

That said, the evidence from political science does appear to suggest that if Republican intransigence destroys the American economy, that the voters will respond to this by punishing the incumbent President and electing a Republican.

Matt is not alone.

Check here, TNR on Moral Authority and the Debit Ceiling.

And here, Walter Shapiro, courtesy of digby, from TNR, Obama can't assume.

Those are just the recent obvious reason the progressive netroots are extremely pathetic and lame. The progressive netroots, as represented by Dkos are as ineffectual as John Kerry at a Swiftboat parade. 

  It's time for the progressive netroots to face up to the sorry truth and admit that Markos Moulitos is a Glen Beck mole.

 

 

Or so they say . . .

And because Johnathan Chait says so

Here, and here and here.  Wow! That Markos is one sly son-of-a-bitch.

I Rest My Case

Just look at what that bastard Markos did:

The Democratic Party, as Moulitsas has written, is indeed undergoinga comprehensive reformation, as is liberalism in general. At theend of this reformation, what will the left look like? It will looka lot more like the Republican machine that prevailed in Florida.It will be nastier and more ruthless, and less concerned withintellectual or procedural niceties. It will be more of adisciplined movement and less of a collection of idiosyncraticpersonalities.

Conservatives have crowed for years that they have "won the war ofideas." More often than not, such boasts include a citation ofRichard Weaver's famous dictum, "Ideas have consequences." A war ofideas, though, is not an intellectual process; it is a politicalprocess. As my colleague Leon Wieseltier has written, "[I]f you arechiefly interested in the consequences, then you are not chieflyinterested in the ideas." The netroots, like most of theconservative movement, is interested in the consequences, not theideas. The battle is being joined at last.
