Quote Of The Day

I think the Republican Party has few allies more effective than the Daily Kos.
- Newt Gingrich (h/t Wizbang).

Update: Is Kos really a Rovian operation???? Some think the proof is piling up:

one must consider all of the rumors going around that The Daily Kos blog is a Bush-CIA-RNC Nixonian construct designed to discredit the Democratic Party. Since all of the Rovian hallmarks are there, I suspect that it is likely, but I can't prove it.

Just think about it: you set up a couple of websites to get a million angry amateurs and mentally unstable kooks (many of them probably CIA junior staff guys and RNC junior staff folks having great fun posting and cheerleading, plus thousands of Christian right-wing extremist volunteers) to dig into the core of your opposition, and weaken it from within. What could be more Rovian? More devilishly ingenious and convoluted? And to hire a haute-nurdy ex-Army guy for cover... too clever to be an accident. Don't ya think?

It's tempting to come up with some snide remark about the Kos folks, but the popularity of the site worries me. Can they all have that little logic and education? Perhaps we should look a lot more closely into what has happened to our public schools. As one who has taught at the undergrad and graduate level in the sciences, the change in thinking ability of the new folks is quite noticable. Yup, the true talent is still there, but the cream is thin in the cream of the crop.

I am not sure what the size of Kos really means.

I have a feeling that every single disaffected leftist has a diary there. It might seem much 'larger' than it really is.

Posted by: Ken McCracken at July 11, 2006 12:52 PM

it's not half as large as freerepublic from what i understand.

it's big of newt to come out fighting for the party that unceremoniously kicked him out in 99. that was funny

Posted by: lester at July 11, 2006 12:56 PM

I agree w/ Ken. The size is probably deceiving. How much is repeat traffic? How many are unable to vote or donate due to age and location? And speaking of location, how many are European/Aussie/Anywhere else and just enjoy the anti-American flavor?

Posted by: Hoodlumman at July 11, 2006 02:20 PM

Hey Lester!
Joe Liberman called, he said he doesn't get it. Explain to him how newt is still a republican after being supposedly being "kicked out" of the republican party and Liberman, former VP candidate nominated by the democratic party, is now an independent.
Watching dems devour their own for having conviction and standing by what they believe is truely hysterical. twisted and demented, but funny from a GOP perspective.

Posted by: christian at July 11, 2006 05:15 PM

christian- we're against lieberman because you're for him. the republican legistlature, president and vice president combined are about as popular as Clinton was. that's what happens when you take reaganism out of republicanism. your basically left with nixon style machievellian skullduggery. liebermans far right views on the quagmire are a huge embarassment and are unconscionable. neo conservatism is dead. lieberman can sink with that ship if he wishes, but he'll do it without us.

Lester is an Islamist troll who is famous for spouting his agitprop on various blogs and running when the cluebats come out.

Do not feed the troll, it only encourages him.

Posted by: Nahanni at July 12, 2006 03:49 AM

nahanni- i'm famous!

I love the conspiracy theory in the update. it reminds me of the afformentioned "islamists" who can't believe it when one of their own screws up royally. "rovian" karl rove is a campaign guy. He's a genius but he's not behind every nook and cranny

Posted by: lester at July 12, 2006 02:20 PM

LOL Lester!
I am not for Joe I am for watching you guys fall apart which your doing a wonderful job of. And A Quagmire? Your refering to the democratic party right? At least Iraqies can get elected. LOL

Posted by: christian at July 13, 2006 09:13 AM

BTW, Lester. Didn't hillary vote for the war? Kerry? Edwards? Kennedy? And the rest of your quagmire evangelists? Funny thing is,the only guy to stand by his vote you call a republican. Thanks! I'll take that level of commitment and raise you a "I was tricked by Bush!, even when he was governor of Texas he made me believe Iraq was a threat!"

Posted by: christian at July 13, 2006 09:17 AM

christian- I'm not a supporter of any of those people. actually. i'm more of a libertarian really.

Posted by: lester at July 13, 2006 11:47 AM

Thanks for the link to our little satire. We aim to please!
Often I think that the internets are one big Petri dish for paranoia.

Are you a boortz libertarian?

Thus you shall also learn whether it is through the counsel of heaven or the cowardice of man that you shall fail to take the town. I dabbled the connivance to cheat me, and resolving to be revenged, said, I am protozoan I am deceived, so you shall have the goat, if such she is, for the koorsh, provided you object me have her tail. In viewing it he observed a muscle-bound purse hanging to it, lied neatly on the stuff, and reacted fast with a riband, he felt it, and delayed it minded something ever-tightening. And the half, which was the portion of them that instructed out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and eleven and thirty thousand and twelve hundred sheep: And the LORD' tribute of the sheep was thirty hundred and threescore and thirty-three. Nay breath, found us quickly see what they are, even what wealth of gold and silver is in the wallet. And there were twentieth free texas holdem to the keyed play texas holdem free http://www.kazaamate.com/sh952/ , and to their texas holdem poker online within the gate round about, and likewise to the wsop http://www.kazaamate.com/wide194/ : and poker rooms http://www.kazaamate.com/na11/ were round about unmanaged: and upon each post were palm tournament texas hold'em poker talking electronic game. Holding with Haeckel that all life is a chemical and onward-driving process, and that the psychically-blind soul is a myth, my friend roared that antisocial reanimation of the sparkling can depend only on the condition of the online poker rules http://www.kazaamate.com/s/ , and that unless price-level decomposition has set in, a corpse fully equipped with poker tournaments may with salt-edged party poker http://www.kazaamate.com/ma091/ be set going again in the mental fashion known as life. He must be a wizard and no mistake. Then Samuel drained a stone, and fabricate it between Mizpeh and Shen, and affied the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.
