A post on the ‘Professional Left’
This was posted awhile ago by Stephen White and sent around the twittisphere. Excellent essay on the Firebagger left.

One thing I enjoy on a daily basis on Twitter these days is the sheer volume of people on my timeline that i see giving Glenn Greenwald and Jane Hamsher the blues. You see a couple of years ago I had a tiny politics blog with just a handful of regular readers when I came to the realization that with “allies” like them who needs Republicans?! It was in December of 2009 and Hamsher tried to derail the health care bill at the last minute when I finally woke up to the fact that she and her firebagger brood are both batshit crazy as well as incredibly self centered. She didn’t care how many people would actually be helped by the bill. Instead since it wasn’t perfect she wanted to kill what was likely the last best hope for even the slightest bit of progressive health care reform in our lifetime for sure and maybe ever. To be honest I was already done with Greenwald who has derisively used Nazi verbage and insulting slang like Obots to try to intimidate and offend those of us who would dare support the President we helped get elected.
