06/13/2006 Entry: "The trouble with Kostopia"

"The Kosniks are cultists, and there is, ultimately, nothing more tiresome. They've invested so much, emotionally, in the Democratic Party that it's made them rather shallow and monotonous. All their thinking, all their energy, is bent toward getting people like Massa and Sestak -- and ultimately, Warner or Hillary Clinton -- into office. As the song says:

"One, two, three, what're we fighting for?
"Don't ask me, I don't give a damn...

"No doubt they all started with a vision, a generous, humane vision. But the instrument they chose to realize their vision has turned them into its instruments instead."
Enter Sandman; Exit Kosland, by Michael J. Smith, Counterpunch, June 12, 2006 (via Cursor.org)

Geeze, and I thought I didn't like Markos and Kostopia. And there's a whole blog, too. Kos is just the tip of this guy's iceberg. Or something.

Edit 061606: What Was Missing At YearlyKos, by Christopher Hayes, In These Times, June 15, 2006

Excuse me, but bloggers like Markos and Duncan, who make a living blogging, are not likely to understand the needs of people who don't. That goes for the wannabe pro bloggers, too. Netroots, may the good Lord forgive me for writing that word, is not a labor movement and labor, something Markos and Duncan and their ilk have removed themselves from, is the life blood of the left. Or used to be, maybe that's why the left is dying. Lest we forget, folks, working people need a civil society as much as anyone. As far as I can see, Nathan Newman and occassionally MaxSpeak aside, the bushco slave society idea (tax only wages, cut services, slave wages box stores, no heathcare benefits, no free childcare, etc.) isn't opposed enough on the web. Full disclosure: I work as a secretary, so I'm not out there doing union work (although we should have a union, but that's a whole other issue), but the hopes and fears I have for our country as it is now are closer to working class issues than Markos and Duncan ever blog about. As you read this on your computer, let's remember that not everyone can afford or has time for a computer. Let's not forget them in the glare of Kostopia.
