Lefty Blogger: McCain a "Drama Queen on These Issues"

Speaking of Georgia, McCain said:

My friends, we have reached a crisis, the first probably serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War. This is an act of aggression.

"The first probably serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War" is of course wrong. He's attempting to underscore the seriousness of Russia's aggressions and unveiled imperial ambitions, but he does so by denigrating the various other crises we've faced since then.

So, he's wrong, and the remark is dumb.

But here's how one lefty blogger responds:

Not the invasion of Kuwait? Or the first Gulf War? Or the Afghan war? Or the second Iraq war? Or Darfur? Or Bosnia? Or 9/11? It's this kind of emotional hyperbole that should worry people about McCain in the White House. He's a drama queen on these issues. With a finger on the trigger.

Which lefty blogger is accusing McCain of "emotional hyperbole" and being a "drama queen"?

If you guess the answer, I'm impressed.

This lefty blogger routinely displays his gross lack of self-awareness, often accusing others of faults that he has in high spades redoubled.

But this -- this -- shows past-mastery in obliviousness that I just didn't know was possible.

The man frequently called "Mr. Excitable" and who trades in unhinged conspiracy theories that would make Lyndon LaRouche blush really, really needs to take a good hard look at himself, try to get past the sweaty, desperate narcissism, and contemplate the possibility of his own flaws.
