Kos Goes to War

This Washington Post report from the Yearly Kos convention includes a couple of quotes that are too good to pass up.

Markos Moulitsas Zúniga says about his movement, "I think Democratic politicians -- I don't know whether slowly or quickly -- are realizing that we aren't these far-leftist, naïve and young political extremists...." If so, those politicians are right. Many of them are not young.

Meanwhile, Tom Mattzie of, speaking of the "net-roots activist community," declares, "They want Democrats to stand up and fight. They don't want Neville Chamberlain Democrats; they want Muhammad Ali Democrats."

Actually, these Democrats are much like Neville Chamberlain's party. Chamberlain only wanted to avoid fighting the external enemy -- Hitler. He was more than willing to take on and dismiss Churchill as an intemperate imperialist hawk.

But no one can say that these Democrats won't fight. Unfortunately, they will only fight other Americans.

I regret that I have removed a comment. As indicated on the sidebar, profanity is not permitted in comments.

If it were possible to edit comments, I would have retained much of it. In response to my post, the commenter listed a number of issues on which he considered it important to fight Americans.

You regret it? Go read this and then you can retract that regret.

Jeffrospam is a looney troll who needs to be neutered like his cat.
