What has the power to unite such disparate voices as Balk the Left, Diggly Wiggly, Gesundheit, the NewsPwogs, Pandadroppings and Pwogman! in a single chorus of opprobrium? I mean, we're talking about a group of bloggers whose opinions run the gamut of political, philosophical and moral thought from A all the way to B! How could anyone or anything get all these unique and special, special voices chanting in unison?
Meet Joe Klein.
Well, this Kein fellow, he must have done something fairly despicable, nu? He must be advocating genocide or torture or the new Madonna album. These influential progressive pundits wouldn't waste precious electrons on anything less! So it's gotta be something like that, right?
Long story short, there's a pissing contest going on between low level DP media flunky Klein and even lower level DP media flunky Glen Greenwald. It's the tiresome kind of you-said-I-said and who-shot-john and blah-blah-blah that fauxgressive bloggers love. And, as we all know, anytime two of the bigger kids get in a playground scuffle, a ring of smaller kids always forms around them.
