Love this line from Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, founder of popular US satire site Daily Kos:

“They want to make me into the latest Jesse Jackson, but I’m not ideological at all,” Moulitsas told me, “I’m just all about winning.”

Oh, no he isn’t! Go visit Mark Coffey for much more on this happy-go-lucky online oddball.

    1. Someone wants Zuniga to be Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton says he’s “looking forward to becoming George Bush.” Weirdness everywhere.

    1. Markos had better worry about his karma.  He might come back as a hemorrhoid.

    1. There’s nothing much to say about somebody who prides himself on being an asshole.  Hope he enjoys lifelong friendlessness and unemployment.

      Or, maybe he will become the Democrats’ master tactician.  I’d say that’s the perfect example of the chickens coming home to roost.

    1. He’s all about winning in much the same way Billy Barty was all about slam-dunking.

    1. Mystery Meat—What’s Kos done to deserve promotion like that?

    1. Kos as the Great Black Hope? Don’t see it, somehow. An arrogant, ideological fanatic who can’t see that he’s an anchor around the neck of the Democratic Party? Sure, there’s THAT resemblance, of course, but I doubt that he will ever be able to master the sing-song, liberal nursery-rhyme style of the Very Reverend Jesse Jackson.

    1. Well, once global warming has sent us all below sea level, being an anchor on the Democratic Party just means the Dems will be first to govern from our new living quarters at the bottom of the sea. Markos wins again!

    1. #5- being a hemorrhoid is the next step down from being a cheerleader for Howard Dean.

    1. Markos is enthusiastic about being an asshole. I’m happy for him. If the DNC won’t hire him, he could always be a poster boy for Preparation H.

    1. Awwww Kos was just trying to win one for the flipper…Who’s to quibble if in the process he Kreated his very own internet bubble to exploit.

    1. …Not that there is anything wrong with exploiting bubbles and such.

    1. The latest Jesse Jackson?  Who should be more insulted, Jesse or Kos?

      You know, with his track record, maybe the Dems are listening to him to decide what candidates not to run.

      “I’m just all about winning.” Hmm, nothing there about what he wants to win – including elections. Vaguely worrisome.

      “He never blinks.” Hmm again.  Just like Anthony Hopkins in “Silence of the Lambs”.  Okay, not really. But indicative of hyperconcentration? A tiny bit worrisome.

  1. Now that I think about it, going from a Dean cheerleader to a hemorrhoid might be a step up.
