Kos Kidz Want to Play
Apparently the Kos Kidz now want to play “outraged upstanding moral citizens,” quoting extreme-sounding comments from LGF visitors out of context and falsely attributing them to me. The same old stuff: Daily Kos :: From the ‘Saner Part of the Blogosphere’.
For the record, because fools like this always ignore it when they get into a cherry-picking frenzy, this is posted at the top of every single page of comments at LGF:
Comments are open and unmoderated, although obscene or abusive remarks may be deleted. Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of Little Green Footballs.
Also for the record, there is no similar disclaimer at Daily Kos.
You will not find a single statement from me on the front page of LGF (the part that does represent my views) that comes anywhere close to the vile sentiment expressed by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (owner and proprietor of Daily Kos), upon learning that four American citizens had been burned alive, ripped apart, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah:
Let the people see what war is like. This isn’t an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly.
That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.
As for the other commenters at Daily Kos, I have no doubt whatsoever that it would be trivial to find a similar number of disgusting and hateful comments at that hole. But unlike the Kos Kidz, I have more rewarding things to do with my time.

Now “Hunter” is joining the LGF bashfest at Kos: Daily Kos :: Meta Kos. “Hunter” is the dishonest Kos ideologue who posted a laughable attempt to argue that the faked CBS memos were genuine: Pathetic Ignorance at Daily Kos. And he now paints himself as a technology expert. Right.

This eruption of LGF bashing at Daily Kos was triggered by the following article by Dean Barnett at the Daily Standard, pointing out how loony Daily Kos is from the top down: Kos Party.
