    It's  important enough to put your name on.

    Frankly, I found Ms. Brazile's open letter manipulative and theatrical.

    I've not been impressed by her performance as a spokesperson, and I suspect she is one of the people who is against the reform moves that will dilute her power and influence.  That letter was public notice she won't go quietly.

    That said, I don't care if she has a screaming fit as she's thrown out the door with her favorite potted plant right after her.

    This self-appointed reform "Sherriff", the anonymous source, should be thrown right along side her. This is petty, self-serving bullshit. Any merit to the argument is gutted completely by the racist language and the anonymity.

    Got any toes left at this point in your career, Sheriff  Mouse? Guess now you're starting on others' feet.

    A few weeks ago, Atrios post an interesting entry titled You link it, you own it (hopefully that link to the archives works.) Same thing holds when you post something anonymously sourced.

    Kos, just a couple of days ago crowed  "They Finally Fear Us". That arrogance and the heady exuburance of today's developments gave that little Mouse just the opportunity to settle a score, maybe two.

    Someone used the power of this blog, and all of us, to settle a score with Ms. Brazile. If it paid off, a la Roemer, peachy. And if it backfired, and took some steam off the blog engines, that was probably good, too.

    Kos, I think you've been played here.  And it's a game for fools.

    •  well said (none)
      I'm not convinced on the "racist" overtones, but it is self-serving.  Enough to earn from me the contempt of the anonymous source.

      I think the good ol' days of kos are done, this site is now rife with democratic operatives, and its allegiances are much more murky.  Let's hope kos is up to the task of staying above it all.  Or at least hope the stains will come out in the wash.

      •  I appreciate your answer. (none)
        I think the reference to Jesse Jackson and to Sister Souljah remove any question of whether it was racist in my mind.

        If the legitimate points had been made without those comments, they would have been much stronger.

        If this was a reform Mousie, he's a stoopid one.
