    Last night I was perusing that wretched hive of scum and villainy, the Daily Kos. Turns out Olbermann is leading them in a Jihad against Beck, to take revenge for Van Jones. They were debating intensely the merits of attacking Beck's religion, Mormonism...

    This morning, I discover the Kossack grunts have reached this forum...

    Am I the only one who finds this incredibly amusing? :lol:

    Is whining about the likes of Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, etc. the only thing Olbermann does? I've tuned in to his show several times and always, this is what he's doing. Does he have any substance at all or does he just piss and moan?

    Ads and the donations of its members...much like this site. They've got no physical holdings, and so have very little overhead.

    In short, it's 4chan for liberals.

    Prominent content contributors to Daily Kos include Barbara Boxer, Jimmy Carter, John Conyers, Jon Corzine, Russ Feingiold, Tom Harkin, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Jim McDermott, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Cindy Sheehan, and Lynn Woolsey. Below are selected excerpts from some of their postings:

    In August 2006, John Conyers made reference to "the accumulated evidence that the Bush Administration has thumbed its nose at our nation's laws, and the Constitution itself." Five months earlier, Conyers wrote: "I wanted to make sure all of you know about an important event in New York City … Harper's Magazine is hosting a public forum entitled 'Is There a Case for [President Bush's] Impeachment?' It will be moderated by Sam Seder of Air America Radio's the Majority Report. I will be on the panel with Lewis H. Lapham, the editor of Harper's … We will be joined by Michael Ratner, the President of the Center for Constitutional Rights …"

    In July 2006, Russ Feingold denounced the Bush administration for "doing so much to weaken our system of checks and balances"; for planning "to try some detainees held at Guantanamo Bay in military commissions that lacked basic safeguards of fairness"; and for allegedly believing that "it can make up its own laws." Four months earlier, Feingold wrote: "In the four-plus years since [9/11], … [t]he President [has] exploited the climate of anxiety, misusing the trust he was given in the wake of the attacks on 9/11 to, among other things, grab intrusive powers in the Patriot Act, and take us into a war in Iraq that has been a diversion from the critical fight against terrorism."

    In June 2005, Ted Kennedy wrote that "the Bush Administration was determined to go to war in Iraq, regardless of whether there was any credible justification for doing so"; and that "the timing of the war was linked to the 2002 Congressional elections."

    In July 2006, Nancy Pelosi wrote: "On October 11, 2002, the Congress … passed legislation giving the President the authority to use force in Iraq. At the time I was a vocal critic of the war, but unfortunately my voice … was drowned out by misinformation from the administration. In making its case, the administration threatened us that if we didn't act fast, the proof of Saddam's Weapons of Mass Destruction would 'come in the form of a mushroom cloud.' We were also told that the case against the war, and the evidence of a weapons' program was, 'a slam dunk.' Now, three and a half years later, the American public knows what many of us believed all along, that this administration, and our president, misled us about the case to go to war."

    In January 2006, Cindy Sheehan lauded the anti-capitalist, pro-socialist World Social Forum that she was attending in Caracas, Venezuela. "I know the idea of a world where everyone lives in peace and with justice is very 'subversive,' she wrote, "but the theme is very close to my heart and soul. We need a new world. This one is broken."

    Zuniga also features a roster of prominent political contributors on his blog, including John Kerry, Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy. "The only way I could exert more influence would be if I were President," he has said of his work.

    Zuniga admits being well compensated for his efforts on behalf of the Democratic Party. He reports that in 2005 he earned "somewhere between $70,000 and $80,000." "I live comfortably," said Zuniga in March 2006. "My wife and I just bought a house here in Berkeley [California]."
