I've been wondering what Jane Hamsher has been up to over these last few years. I literally hadn't seen or heard from her during the entire second term of Pres.Obama.
The last I heard from her she was trying to form an alliance with Ron Paul /Tea Party libertarians to defeat Obama. She coined a new term for her ratfucking..."Transpartisanship"
posted 07-15-2011Well apparently one of the things she has been up to is joining in the right wing hysteria over Benghazi.Which is an entirely politcally motivated campaign to smear Hillary Clinton & the Obama Administration. It's literally a GOP fundraising tool.
My Twitter feed has been abuzz lately, with some leftists very angry that Jane Hamsher is about to endorse Ron Paul and push for the "Blue Republican" movement proposed by Robin Koerner of the Huffington Post. For those of you that don't know her, Jane Hamsher is the editor/owner(?) of FireDogLake, a very progressive website that has been critical of President Obama.
Here she links to an article by some fool on her website named Peter Van Buren.
Van Buren asks a list of questions directed at Hillary Clinton that sound like the standard script a Fox News contributor would read off of. For the record this is well over a YEAR after Benghazi stopped being an issue and FDL (like the GOP) is still flogging it.
Here's another "true progressive" who just also happened to join in on the GOP Benghazi campaign.You know, just asking questions. (Cavuto / Rove approves)
Oh look, it's Hamsher's old business partner Glenn Greenwald
I'm sure it's just a coincidence now that Hamsher has been attacking Elizabeth Warren on twitter, Greenwald joins in as well.
hopey changie? Jane using an old Anti-Obama attack line from Palin's hand scribbles to attack Sen.Warren...so original
I guess teleprompter jokes are next.
Two Anti-Democrat peas in a pod.
Let's check the scoreboard for these two "Transpartisans"
Support for Ron Paul & attempts to get
progressives in league with Teabagger libertarians - CHECK
Hatred for Pres.Obama - CHECK
Hatred for Hillary Clinton - CHECK
Joining GOP smear campaigns - CHECK
now attacking Progressive leader Elizabeth Warren - CHECK
I'm sure there are still folks out there who will attempt to overlook this and try to convince people that both of these folks are working for the interests of the left.
Somebody's got to sell that snake oil.
