Since you bring up the subject. This DLC blogger who is linked from their front page really made fun of all of us the day after the election. He thumbed his nose at Kos, at us, at anyone who supported Lamont. He was so cute...he called it KOSenfreude* and he linked to this page.
schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\, noun:
A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others.

There is some pretty nasty stuff at that need to read it

Here is the post.


The Moose gloats and kvells.

There is great joy in Mooseland. The nutroots have struck out. Joe Lieberman has prevailed. The vital center is victorious!

Read and weep, dear nutroots

Don't believe the pathetic nutroots spin. In August, they engaged in premature triumphalism believing that they vanquished the vital center. One even indicated that he had ominous plans to obliterate the organization that Joe once led. No, they did not need the dreaded establishment. All they needed were their trusted keyboards and their internet access.

Bloviating bloggers had rushed to the Nutmeg State to hop aboard the Lamont bus with laptops in hand. Indeed, the candidate was their creation. He was their central project. And this "people power" populist plutocrat poured millions of his own fortune into the race. While the nutroots are fervent, they are also cheap.

As the Moose used to say in Texas, the nutroots were all hat and no cattle. Alas, the internet emperors wear no clothes! MSM take note. Kos and Sirota are out. Gerstein and Sun are in.

I think that anyone who is a leader in the DLC...think Hillary and Carper, Bayh also?...need to think about who they are linking to from their website's front page. I take this very seriously. Very.

They better make it clear he is not their guy, or I will make it clear I do not support a DLC candidate in 08. He is linked from their front page.

And he then sends a warning to the Democrats who supported Ned...

A powerful message has been sent to the '08 wannabees who sent Negative Ned their money and support - you can pander to the nutroots to win primaries, but you must reach out to the vital center to win a general election (even in a deep blue state). More persuasion and less comment threads, please.

The Moose deeply enjoys Kosenfreude*. And yes, Virginia, there is Joementum!

I was on board in 04, gladly. I have been on board in 06, gladly. I make no bones that 08 is a horse of a different color. As long as this guy is boasting at the DLC....I will mark those candidates off my list.
