re: "Yglesias Award Nominee"
"When DailyKos simply decides to ignore, say, the Israel-Hezbollah conflict in favor of domestic Democratic in-fighting are telling us something. They're telling us they still have no clue of the struggle we are in. (That goes for Mickey Kaus, as well, by the way: unable to muster anything but the odd, dyspeptic splutter about the great struggle of our time.) The Kossites are telling us that if they control the Democratic party, it will not take the threat seriously enough. That's the Kos message on the war: we don't just refuse to fight Bush's war, but any war. Not all of them think that way, but a serious minority do. Maybe those who understand the threat on the far-left can now take on those who put the war on terror in quote-marks. The corpses of 9/11 did not have quote-marks around them."
