Feeling p0wned, Lord Kos?

Shystee commented on this gem, but in the light of our discussion today on whether Obama identifies as a progressive, I thought I'd bring it forward. Lord Kos:

Obama's path to the nomination at this point runs through Democratic voters. And ultimately, while my absentee ballot will be mailed out Monday with his name checked off, I'm pessimistic that he can win. He has shown no proclivity for speaking in unambiguous progressive tones, and it could cost him the election.


Somehow, I hardly think that "hold your nose and vote for Obama" was where Kos thought he would be now. Eh?

NOTE Here's a poll you might want to freep. So far, Kos fundraising has been reserved for insurgent candidates...

You’ve become wingnut pure and simple but from the Democratic base. It actually has nothing to do with politics, left, right or center. I think there’s actually an interesting psychological lesson here. You’ve spent so much time obsessing over the blogosphere continually repeating the same tired snark and clever little digs at the flaws of the enemy that you have become one with it. You no longer have to think. You have prewritten responses for everything. Your mind is locked from the inside.

Prime Unit is Progressive because all Progressive goals have been assimilated into the Prime directive.

You will lower your shields, and turn off your sensors.

Questioning votes after the Prime unit was assimilated into the DINOcrat collective is evidence of your own resistance to assimilation.

That the Prime unit's voting record in the Collective has been identical to the wishes of the Collective since his pre-sssimilation vote at the begining of the War is immaterial.

The greater good is always the goal of the Collective. Because it says so. The Prime unit, mentored by the Lieberman unit since his assimilation, is an example of how all progressive values should be integrated into the Collective. We know the effectiveness of the Lieberman unit's programming.

The Lieberman unit's assimilation of the Clinton units into the Collective, his work with the McCain drone, and his close association with the Cheneys alpha and omega demonstrate the solidarity of his unity programming.

We repeat, you will lower your shields and break off independent thought. Such thought is against the Unity Collective. You will cease all resistance to the Collective, for resistance is futile.

No Hell below us
Above us, only sky

who is "the enemy," antiphone? i guess i'm just dense and locked in the mind, i really don't understand at all what point you think you're making.

you know, Corrente is actually pretty light, on the topic of the Intrablogosphere Wars. you should see some other places, where sometimes I wonder if the writers are aware of news happening "offline" at all. Not that being blogosphere-centric is automatically a waste of time or wrong, but I think we do a pretty good job here balancing news, commentary, and blogofabulous snarking.

Hi antiphone! (Hey, can you believe it, the last time I used that line over at DK, the OFB called me a racist!)

OK, I'm going away now!
