But What Does He Think of Sam "Alito"?


Writing on DailyKos.com, or what James Taranto brilliantly describes as "the Mos Eisley of the Angry Left," John Kerry said:

"Do I support a filibuster? The answer is yes.  Yesterday Senator Kennedy and I spoke with our colleagues about it. I don't have a shred of doubt in my opposition to Sam Alto's nomination."

Who is this "Sam Alto," and is he somehow related to Tony Soprano?

So Is the Padilla Story "Legless"?

Malbug_13Torture.com Andrew Sullivan apparently has the same talking points on the "presumed innocent" Padilla as Daily Kos, which shouldn't surprise me.  (What does surprise me, however, is that anyone still bothers to defend Sullivan as "conservative.")

And like any good lefty, Sully has been much more gleeful about, and credulous of, the Libby indictment – the only story of the two, by the way, that he says "has legs."

"Dr. Cavil" and the DLC


The clocks seem to run a little slow in Loonyland: The DailyKos and his merry band of pitchfork-wielders have apparently pushed back their deadline for mounting jihad against the DLC.

LGF thinks they all might just go away for the tidy sum of one millllllllion dollars:

Mind you, he first said "two weeks" more than three weeks ago.  (Oh, and nice haircut, Markos.)

Kos's Cause: Dismantle the DLC


The Daily Kos, the liberal blogger with an out-sized view of his own power, has aimed his howitzer directly at Democratic centrists.  Believing that the moderate Democratic Leadership Council "is in desperate need of relevance," this patron saint of the loony left is threatening to turn his activist hounds on the one organization that arguably was responsible for the election of the only Democratic president of the last quarter-century:

So what's left? Let the DLC fizzle out on its own? We could do that. It has a limited shelf life.

Or we can help the process along, working collectively to hasten the process. And I've got a plan to do just that.

Consider this a teaser. ETA is four weeks.

If we didn't know any better, we would think this were a brier patch constructed not by Kos, but by Republicans, and we'd be tempted to wish that the ever-leftward-veering Democrats find themselves tossed right into it.  But the country needs a vital two-party system.  It also needs centrist Democratic national candidates who will force moderation upon the opposition, and keep Republican hubris in check.
