Kosgate?

Untitled document

Well, there's suddenly a lot of noise in the right blogosphere about a leaked email from Kos to a lot of top-ranked lefty bloggers. Frankly, I haven't written a thing about the allegations that there may have been some sort of quid pro quo in who Kos' partner took consulting fees from and who Kos then endorsed. Frankly if there was such an arrangement, it sounds like old fashioned backroom politics. Not exactly cutting edge.

The email is a different story. If lefty bloggers are indeed following Kos' directions to starve the story of oxygen by not writing about it, those bloggers may damage themselves in the long run.

For the record, I am not on any super-duper top secret mailing lists. I'm not sure if I'd join a club that would have me as a member, to paraphrase Groucho. Nor do I get – or would I accept, for that matter – direction on what to blog about and what to ignore.

It speaks volumes about the sort of people who do, doesn't it?

  2. Some people are blaming The New Republic for reporting the story. That’s when you know you’re dealing with a Vast Leftwing Konspiracy…

    Just the DailyKost of doing business.

    Kos will fight to the death on this issue because it affects his credibility and without that he’s just another hack. One that has gone 0 for 20 on campaigns. Come to think of it, were I a Lefty candidate, I’d pay Kos big bucks to NOT recommend me. His endorsement seems to be the kiss of death. Dean, Kerry, …. Busby…etc.

    Kos is going to go down, and those that bring him down will not be from the Right – it will be his own former mindless mendicants who will cannibalize him once they are told they’ve been betrayed – a fact they cannot figure out for themselves – and hence the reason Kos wants everybody to hush hush.
