Fierce, Bullying, Intolerance Overtakes Left-wing of Blogosphere

Today, we are recommending an article by Joe Klein, author of Primary Colors. He notes that a terrible lack of civility has begun to take place on left-wing blogs. Because most would classify Klein with the left, the comments are remarkable. Says Klein:

"[T]he smart stuff is being drowned out by a fierce, bullying, often witless tone of intolerance that has overtaken the left-wing sector of the blogosphere. Anyone who doesn't move in lockstep with the most extreme voices is savaged and ridiculed—especially people like me who often agree with the liberal position but sometimes disagree and are therefore considered traitorously unreliable."

Noticed in the detail, a common bit of politicking from Barack Obama..

Despite their votes, each of those politicians believes the war must be funded. (Obama even said so in his statement explaining his vote.)

Once again, Obama votes one way, then claims to be against what he voted for. Such courage! Such audacity! Presidential material, indeed.
