As a onetime lefty, I’m fairly familiar with political schisms – you know, Trotsky, Lenin, the Third International… that kind of thing. But I was not prepared for the storm on the Daily Kos today. The Hillarians apparently are crying foul about their treatment by the Obamamanians on the popular site and are now striking… in other words not writing for the Daily Kos anymore. The well-known etymologist and and literatur, Markos ‘Kos’ Moulitsas , demurs before wishing them well: “First, these people should read up on the definition of ‘strike.’ What they’re doing is a ‘boycott.’ But whatever they call it, I think it’s great. It’s a big Internet, so I hope they find what they’re looking for.”
Well, I do too, Markos. Any suggestions?
