I was a bit dubious when I was asked to begin posting some of my stuff at My.Firedoglake.com. I haven’t been a fan of the main site in a very long time and I detest most of what I see & hear from Jane Hamsher. But the new editor of the My.FDL site encouraged me, saying they were trying to get more sane commentary on the public part of the site and he thought I could help with that. He promised me my stuff would be “front-paged” every time I posted. I was reluctant to do anything that would bring eyeballs to her site and bring her more revenue but decided thought maybe I should give it a chance. So I did.
Well, no more.
You gotta feel sorry for [President Obama]. His most ardent supporters are the dumbest motherfuckers in the world, and they don’t realize he thinks they are digging his political grave.
Fuck you, Jane Hamsher. You are the epitome of everything that is wrong with far-left liberals these days. You accuse others of hurting the cause and of abandoning “the base”, then you spew vicious vitriol like this against the supporters of a president that is clearly still a wildly popular among Democrats and other liberals? These are the thousands upon thousands of volunteers and contributors that will work their asses off to make sure that we keep the Republicans out of the White House for at least one more term. The shark has been jumped backwards, blindfolded, with a flaming baton in both hands.
Not. One. More. Word.
Adding… I’m thrilled that my friend Marcy Wheeler is leaving FDL now, as well, though for other reasons. Now I can read her brilliance without having to give Hamsher undeserved traffic.
