Andrew Olmsted cites your humble blogger as one example when he says, "But I do find it more than a little tiresome to hear some people claim how this 'proves' how bad the left is, etc."
Hey I'm not the one celebrating the deaths of four Americans. What Markos Zuniga's post "proves" is up to each individual reader to decide I guess.
You can draw your own conclusions from reading Kos or, say, DU. You can even draw your own conclusions about any number of things regarding the topics I discuss on this blog. But what I did was call Kos out on the carpet. I never came close to issuing a wholesale indictment against the entire left.
And you'll notice that it's Glenn Reynolds who accuses the left of wholesale rot, not me. Why didn't Olmsted use him as an example?
Additionally it seems to me that Olmsted is missing what I think is the biggest catch in the whole Kos saga: this guy is a frickin' Democratic consultant who raises thousands of dollars for the party. He's not some unknown guy with strange ideas, he's a wheel. To me that's just insult on top of injury.
(The link from Olmsted to this page is in the "Update (4/3/04):" portion of the post, and if you click on the word "few" in the first sentence you'll find the link to my site. Note to Andrew: why in the hell are your links so hard to see? They're the same color as the rest of the text. I'm 27 and can't read your frickin' page. I wouldn't know what is a link and what's not.)
Update: Andrew Olmsted has updated the post I'm referring to, and includes an apology to me.
I should have done a better job of checking my citations in the above update. The Ryne McClaren piece I link above does not, in fact, contain blanket attacks on Democrats, but instead focuses on Kos. My apologies to Ryne for misrepresenting his post and to my readers for my sloppiness in sending you to an inappropriate cite.
Your apology is unnecessary, but very gracious Andrew. Please see this post for more on this matter.
