    Austin, Texas -- Last year online activists inspired by, the nation's most popular liberal blog, swelled with power as the Democratic presidential candidates debated at their annual convention, asking for their blessing and a little cash - or at least a link to their site. And this year? In the words of Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Daily Kos blog on which this Netroots Nation convention of political gate-crashers originally gathered: "We are the mainstream." The progressive online movement is now faced with its most significant challenge: using its online power to help elect a Democratic president. Doing that...

    Score one for the Netroots! Newsweek has just announced that Markos Moulitsas, namesake and founder of the Daily Kos website, will be a contributor for the 2008. Here's the statement from Newsweek editor Jon Meachem, which seems to anticipate some sort of reaction from a disgruntled element: "We have always sought to represent a diversity of views in Newsweek, and we think Markos will be a great part of that tradition. He will give our readers in print and online a unique perspective. As always, our job is to create the most energetic and illuminating magazine possible, and Markos will...
  • Political Blogging Spared Rom Regulation {Kos free to campaign}

    09/04/2007 4:40:07 PM PDT · by SmithL · 8 replies · 351+ views
    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- DailyKos, an influential political Web site that serves as a virtual bulletin board for liberals, qualifies as a media entity exempt from federal campaign finance regulations, the Federal Election Commission said Tuesday. The FEC said the Web site, operated by blogger Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, cannot be regulated as a political committee and can freely post blog entries that support candidates. Conservative blogger John C.A. Bambenek had argued in a complaint last month that the site should comply with campaign finance laws because such entries amounted to "a gift of free advertising and candidate media services." The FEC...

    Let's say you are a scandal-ridden governor looking for some love. Where would you find it? Well, if you are New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, aka Steamroller Spitzer, immersed in a scandal that threatens to destroy your political career, you go looking for love in the Daily Kos with a divorced from reality "Happy Talk" blog post that makes no mention any pending unpleasantries. Spitzer's "Happy Talk" love fest on the Daily Kos will have no effect in stopping the scandal investigations but perhaps it is temporarily therapeutic to brag about himself to his fellow leftists in his blog post titled, Congratulations...
  • Kos is Far Worse than an Ideological Bomb-Thrower.

    Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (AKA Kos) has a reputation as an ideologue and a bomb-thrower. I wish this were true, since he succeeds in helping Democrats win elections. He also raises enough money and attracts enough attention to keep liberal memes afloat, even when they lose. Alas, this isn’t the case. Kos is far worse. He’s a power-monger with no ideas. Kos openly admits this. He once said he was not trying to be the next Jesse Jackson. What he meant was that he was a political tactician, rather than a movement philosopher. He describes himself as being all about winning....

    Top Dem candidates debate to win favor of the 'netroots'Chicago -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton faced a convention Saturday of 1,400 politically influential online activists who don't particularly like her. Yet she emerged from the presidential forum here at the Yearly Kos convention with a little more respect - if not love - from the liberal bloggers. It helps that the first thing Clinton did was thank them. In a meeting with about 350 activists before a debate with six other Democratic challengers, Clinton praised the bloggers for helping to create a "modern progressive movement" and for standing up "against...

Limbaugh was celebrating his ripe old age, in media years, in the same week that liberal blog fans were trekking to Chicago for the YearlyKos convention. Therein lies one of the most important stories in American politics. Make no mistake: From the beginning, Limbaugh was a revolutionary figure. He befuddled Democrats and the journalistic establishment because he was an up-to-date throwback. The large audience he won on the right marked the return in the United...

    What did your psychologist tell you?" Such was the penultimate query of one of the first YearlyKos 2007 panels, "Holding Congress Accountable for a Progressive Agenda." The question was presented to Firedoglake celebrity blogger Jane Hamsher by a middle-aged woman who explained she was trying to convince disillusioned "progressive activists who are ready to give up" to continue to partner with her local Democratic Party chapter. Despite the Republicans' recent midterm election reversal of fortune, forlorn talk of Democratic victors stabbing "the netroots" in the back has paradoxically replaced the We're going to kick ass from one end of this...

This comment received 24 positive votes and 0 negative. A follow-up states, "Don't insult dogs like that Given a choice between my dog and Lieberman, I'd gas him without thinking twice." (4+ / 3-).

Verizon, Sallie Mae and Georgia-based NetBank each said they didn't know their ads were on until they received the complaints.

How do you buy a guy that doesn't need money? That isn't willing to be corrupted by their strings-attached cash?You must be joking. Since when did the left adopt the belief that wealth equals incorruptibility? The Senate is full of millionaires, but I thought Washington D.C. was engulfed by a culture of corruption? Or is it only wealthy Republicans who fall under the evil influence of lobbyists? By Kos's logic I guess if we...

    By now, nearly everyone has heard of Hollywood actor Mel Gibson’s arrest for DUI and his subsequent profanity-laced tirade. While it was bad enough that he set such a poor public example for a professing Christian—between the carousing, the public intoxication, and finally the language and lack of respect for the police—Hollywood and many of the cultural elite see fit to pass over these items. (And why not, given the amount of partying, drinking, illicit sex, and use of drugs among the jet set? Their attitude on these matters is “Welcome to the club, Mel!” Instead, the indignation of the...

    When the bombs began to fall in the Middle East, the Daily Kos had a problem. And the Daily Kos's problem could soon be the Democratic party's problem. On the one hand, one of the most solid blocks of support for the Democratic party is America's Jewish community. Not only do America's Jews tend to vote for Democrats, they tend to actively campaign and raise funds for politicians on the left. But for many American Jews, even the most liberal, Israel's welfare is a going concern. Politicians who enter the Democratic party (and for that matter the Republican party) usually...

As a test case, the Kossacks are throwing their weight behind political newcomer Ned Lamont in Lamont’s attempt to unseat Joe Lieberman in Connecticut’s Aug. 8 primary. Best guess is that Lamont will pick off Lieberman. If so, the Kossacks can notch one on their belts. A larger test for the Kossacks and the Netroots Left--which also includes Arianna Huffington and her collection of Hollywood elites and Gary Hart retreads over...

    OF all the political bloggers in America, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, creator of the left-wing website the Daily Kos, is perhaps the most powerful. Famous for dishing out criticism, he is now under attack himself, accused of being an election loser who bestows favours on his flatterers. Like the film-maker Michael Moore, of Fahrenheit 9/11 fame, the prolific and acerbic California blogger thrills his fans but causes moderate Democrats to worry that he could jeopardise the party’s hopes of winning power. With more than 0.5m hits a day, Moulitsas’s no-holds-barred website has become essential reading for the growing “netroots” army of...
  • To That Stupid Liberal Lurker - I Got Zapped

    One look at you tells me all I need to know about you. I am so tired of liberals that think they are so brilliant. You are such a stupid jackass. You are so stupid you probably believe that the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks on 9/11. Every time you go on the internet, every time you make a bank transaction, or pay a bill, every time you try to email a congressman or senator they are getting so much information off of you. Of course it is all a conspiracy by the Bush administration. I have screwed around by...
  • Kos partner was a wacko ASTROLOGIST [Why The Netroots Movement Will Fail]

    Riehl World View ^ | June 23, 2006 | Dan Riehl
    First off, I've probably dug into the recent Kos controversy as much or more than anyone else. I can't see that Marcos Moulitsas has done anything wrong, other than perhaps a knee jerk response to the criticism. So, he has little to do with this post. The Netroots movement will fail because it's a myth based upon a lie sitting upon a foundation of fragmented political thought. The genesis for the Netroots movement stems from a fixation on, first the stockmarket, then astrology, and it only found politics, probably, when it was barred from engaging in a previous financial fascination...

    The New Republic ^ | June 23, 2006 | Jonathan Chait
    realize that the new, counterintuitive thing to say about the left blogosphere these days is that it's not really that radical. Markos Moulitsas Zuniga says nice things about Mark Warner, which means he's really just a pragmatist (or easily co-opted, but the effect is the same). All this is mostly true. What this interpretation misses, however, is that the radicalism of the lefty bloggers lies not so much in their ideological platform but in their ideological style. They think like sectarians. And that style is on perfect display in Kos's attack on The New Republic.Kos announces in his headline, "TNR's...

    The KOs volcano has just EXPLODED over the EXPOSURE by The New Republic's Jason Zengerle that Markos Moulitsas sent out a secret e-mail to fellow "progressives" to help him STONEWALL the Blogola SCANDAL that has engulfed him. Here is the text of the secret Stonewall "Townhouse" e-mail: The YearlyKos media people have already forced corrections at Slate and NY Times (Suellentrop's blog). There has been some serious overreach by the few outlets that picked up this story (which as I mentioned before has been shopped around). It was interesting how this one piddly-ass story was used to try and...

    On the right half of the blogosphere, "Kos-ola" is the buzzword of the moment. After reading James Joyner's detailed thoughts, I thought a timeline might be in order. In an effort to cut through the hype, rumors, and whispers, here's how it went down, quoting the central players themselves: DEAN December 2002: Dean Campaign Manager Joe Trippi invites Jerome Armstrong, creator of, to Burlington, Vermont to assist the Dean campaign. (Armstrong's account) January 2003: Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas, creator of Daily Kos, form Armstrong Zuniga, a political consulting firm. June 2003: Trippi hires Moulitsas, and Armstrong, for consulting...

    The rapidly EXPLODING Blogola scandal which has engulfed the Daily Kos as chronicled in yesterday's EDITION of the DUmmie FUnnies is the hot talk of the Blogosphere. Of course, this big scandal is nowhere to be seen in the MSM. However, the shocking Blogola revelations appearing in such blogs as DONKEY CONS and the RIEHL WORLD VIEW have caused the Head KOmmie, Markos Moulitsas, to react by going into the denial mode as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Consulting." So let us now watch the Head KOmmie try to talk his way out of the Blogola scandal...

    The Daily Kos Blogola scandal is now heating up in the Blogosphere but has yet to make its way into the MSM. To sum up, head KOmmie Markos Moulitsas Zuniga and his sleazebag partner, Jerome Armstrong, are now accused of whoring out themselves and the KOmmieland blog for money in exchange for happy talk for those candidates willing to shell out for "consulting fees." The Pay for Blog Play scam works like this: a politician pays Armstrong's Political Technologies LLC firm "consulting fees" which result in (surprise, surprise) enthusiastic postings for that politico in KOmmieland by KOs. This Blogola...

    Dan Riehl has done some digging and found that myDD’s Jerome Armstrong received rather significant payments from his work as a political consultant on Jon Corzine’s successful campaign for NJ governor. While Tim Worstall has a point when he observes that, “with the amount of cash that swills through American politics, they actually look like very small sums,” they’re pretty hefty for amateur consulting services. (A recent MSNBC story has Armstrong describing his role in the Mark Warner campaign as handling “anything that deals with the Internet or technology, especially with the strategic decisions that are made early on in...

    Tuesday, June 20, 2006 Daily Kos: "How Quaint" Two US soldiers kidnapped in Iraq have been found: Bodies of missing U.S. soldiers recovered. BAGHDAD, Iraq - The bodies of two U.S. soldiers reported captured last week have been recovered, and an Iraqi official said Tuesday the men were “killed in a barbaric way.” Al-Qaida in Iraq claimed responsibility for killing the soldiers, and said the successor to slain terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had “slaughtered” them, according to a Web statement that could not be authenticated. The language in the statement suggested the men had been beheaded. The sick freaks...

    EXTRA! For reasons not clear, Daily Kos removed my diary entry, "Bad News" after more than a few people (but less than 63) cried out in extreme anger over it's content(?) In addition, Kos won't let me post anything else(??) They called me a "troll," and other threatening and hurtful things (most of which started with the letter "F") that are not in keeping with our Democratic Party's progressive ideals of non-violence, tolerance, and love. My tears cannot be counted. What I don't understand is how my own liberal brothers and sisters can suddenly turn against me when I have...
