Meet The New Kos, Same As The Old Kos

It's good to be the king:

Does kos have influence over other bloggers? Of course! He may not have direct financial influence over them, at best those claims are tendentious—but some other bloggers feel intimidated, as Mike Stark indicated in a Townhouse message
I might be digging my grave here, but before I put my credibility on the line ofr anyone, I want to know I’m standing on solid ground.

Why would he think he was digging his grave by being contrary to kos if there wasn’t some air of intimidation, real or perceived?

Goldstein notes the characteristic leftist urge for enforced conformity.

Meanwhile, the left has a new conspiracy theory (they average 2.5 per day): Kos is being "swiftboated."

Actually, I don't know that this one is wrong. Hey, politics is hardball. Kos doesn't like Hillary, and Hillary doesn't like Kos. It's quite possible Hillary and Peter Daou have something to do with the embarrassing leaks about Kos.

Remember, it was Al Gore who first used the Willie Horton issue against Michael Dukakis. (Although the left always points out Al Gore didn't actually speak the name "Willie Horton.")
