Kos has delusions of adequacy.
Have you ever been flailed at by a two year old? Some little urchin comes at you, waving its tiny arms with all its might, and you try to figure out how to restrain it until it tires, or loses interest...
I have much the same feeling reading this piece by the head Kossack, Markos Moulitsas :
I've been making the case the last couple of weeks that we can't just focus on winning in November, but that we have an imperative to take advantage of a historic opportunity to break the conservative movement's backs and crush their spirits.
"Crush their spirits"? Dude! Get over yourself! Even if worst came to worst and the Obamunist were to eke out a win this November, the hearts and minds of the Conservative movement will not be deterred by a momentary setback. Let me announce in advance, that no matter who wins the Presidency in November, my spirit shall emerge uncrushed! Heh.
A key component of this effort is to destroy their most beloved leaders.Note the language: "destroy". Not "defeat". Not "beat". Destroy.
The party of the Democrats has long been the home for the Politics of Personal Destruction. Candidate Obama would not be where he is today, had he and his not torpedoed several primary and opposition candidates along the way.
So, this comes as no surprise, other than the rank stupidity of blurting out the truth for all to hear: The Politics of Personal Destruction, although nominally decried by the liberals is actively practiced.
So, take your best shot! Should Obama the Bamboozler bamboozle his way into the White House, the rest of the country is not just going to roll over and play dead. And if a Democrat President has a Democrat Congress to rubber stamp his ideas or vice versa, don't expect that middle America, who would have bought this pig in a poke, will fail to notice that as well.
Long term prediction: Kos: You're still headed for the dustbin of history. It just might take a little longer than previously planned.
