The lead Kossack on "Beat the Press"

I rarely wade into such debates. Mostly, I dislike Markos Moulitsas, but it is not because he is on the Left. It is because he refuses to moderate or control his minions on his site. This morning, AllahPundit linked to the YouTube video of his appearance on "Beat the Press" with Harold Ford, Jr. Markos, for his part, spun away from the accusation that Ford made: "In all fairness, your site has posted awful things." The spin? That's democracy.

No Mr. Moulitsas that is not democracy, unless you mean the literal sense of the word, which equates to mob rule. If that is the case, then indeed his site is all about mob rule. Filthy, illiterate little thugs that they are, but a mob nonetheless. Little Green Footballs, which has had a long-running feud with the Kos man weighs in with the following:

The supreme egotist Markos “Screw Them” Moulitsas appeared on Meet The Press today with DLC chairman Harold Ford, denying and backpedaling furiously away from the hateful, ugly content on his site, and crowing about becoming the new Democratic “mainstream.” Of course, he’s being given a complete pass for his obscene, barely literate writing, and his track record of almost uninterrupted political failure.

It’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion, as the Democrats let their agenda be determined by spoiled, mean-spirited children. The damage from pandering to this lowest of the lowest common denominator will be felt for years.

The webmaster over at LGF (his name escapes me at the moment) is more than correct. For the last several years, the Democrats have slouched towards these people, begging and pleading for their help. As they famously remarked in 2004, "It's our party now, we paid for it," and the Democrats will pay in the years to come. They will pay as more and more of their mainstream voters leave the party to either become Independents or as Republicans. Democrats know this, which is why they were salivating at getting immigration reform passed. Their voter rolls would explode in numbers that could counter the defections of the sane and sensible Democrats fed up with the children that were running the asylum.

But that failed, and the children in the Democrat party, like Markos, believe they are still the mainstream, and they still believe deep inside that the Democrat leaders had best listen to them, or else. The "or else" part of that will come in the savage attacks against Democrats running for higher office. He has made no bones about the fact he dislikes Hillary Clinton for her war vote, and her refusal to stand solidly on the side of retreat. He has allowed praise of John Murtha on his site; praise for calling Marines murderers when even now those Marines are being cleared.

If Markos is the "new mainstream" for the Democrat party as he claimed in his one-on-one with Harold Ford, Jr., then we must all weep for the soul of the Democrat party.
