"KOS-Sacks": Losing Their Marbles Left and Right
Markos Moulitsas -- "Kos" of the Daily Kos -- is getting a lot of attention these days. Check out this Time magazine wet kiss about Kos' growing stature as a king maker in left-wing Democratic politics. Playing to his online audience of post-McGovernite neo-commies, Kos enjoys picking fights with Democratic centrists who have the temerity to put America's security as a top priority.
Among those Democrats is Will Marshall, founder of the centrist Democratic Leadership Council. Marshall wants Dems to reclaim their Truman-J.F.K. heritage in foreign policy. He calls the Kos crowd "aging boomers out to relive the radical days of their youth."
Marshall is right. The radicalism of the Kos crowd is real. And rooted in serious hate. On April 1, 2004, Kos wrote this about the brutal slayings of four U.S. citizens in Fallujah: "I feel nothing over the death of mercenaries … They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them."
Remember that quote next time you read a puff piece on Kos. "Screw them."
