    a reason for Markos to relax his no winger links on the front page policy.

    There is no doubt a winger crusade going on in an attempt to marginalise dKos. Every GOP message machine show has been talking about us lately.I caught about 10 minutes of big pharma's show the other day and he mentioned us twice in that short time.

    So at this point I'm thinking it might be a good idea to main page some quotes from LGF, Freeperville, Heilrocket's place and every other place out there. When the media comes to look at dKos to find out how rabid we are they will be smacked with what the right is saying, which is much worse.

    •  Great idea (none)
      I'd 4 you but I have ratings turned off so the pages actually load.

      And I absolutely agree there's a winger campaign to marginalize Kos right now. Unfortunately, they're being helped right along by so called liberal trolls, as well.

    •  Except... (4.00)
      ...that every time the Repubs flip out about Daily Kos, a few more progressives decide "I guess I need to check out that Daily Kos place" and the site gets bigger and more influential.

      I think ignoring the whackjobs pisses them off even more, and denies them the attention they crave.

      •  Perhaps highlighting... (none)
        ...their most egregious statements is not exactly the whackjobs' idea of attention that they crave.
      •  I'm thinking a short term (none)
        lifting of his policy.Especially as more regular media starts doing stories based on what the GOP message machine wants them to write about us.

    •  Don't use the wild quotes. (none)
      Don't use the name calling or profanity or other hateful speech from LGF or Free Republic.  Those sites have enough just plain nasty rhetoric to tar them nicely.  If I can read an abortion diary on redstate where commenters are implying that the white christians need to keep their birthrates up to keep from being overrun by the nonwhites, I am sure we can find quite blatant examples of the the same sentiment on LFG or FR.

      Blatant misogyny, racism and classism is easy to write off when it comes full of profanity.  When people state it as matter of factly as saying the sky is blue it's actually more shocking.

      We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
