Daily Kos "Mainstream?"

Well, this is gonna take some doing. Apparently the liberal lefty lunatic media is trying to make Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga appear to be reasonable. Here's the story:

The mainstreaming of Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga ("Kos") continued apace as the blogger/political activist showed up on the grand old dame of Sunday morning news shows, Meet the Press.

After declaring last week that the far left liberal netroots were now the "center" of the electorate, the liberal media seems intent on helping him in at least appearing to be reasonable. Running a site where it was recommended that Joe Lieberman be "gassed" or where anti-Jewish hate speech is part of the daily fare (not to mention some of the more outrageous conspiracy theories about the Bush Administration) might seem to some a disqualification for being considered reasonable much less part of the mainstream of American politics. Not so Kos and his netroots whose conference last week drew 1500 activists to Chicago and all but Joe Biden among Democratic Presidential candidates.

Obviously, they know exactly how far OUT of the mainstream this idiot is, and how that might scare off a few voters with two brain cells to rub together. DailyKos is nothing but a hate site, masquerading as political discussion.

JASmius adds: If the Enemy Media is actively trying to pass DK off as "mainstream," either he's going to have to shut down his comment boards entirely, or this can't help but be a boon and Godsend to the Center-Right.

Unless, of course, it's Kos himself who's being given the rub. In that case he might delegate the running of his site to someone else, or perhaps even rename it altogether, in order to provide the needed six degrees of separation. If so, I'd expect to see that "re-packaging" to be already in the final stages. Otherwise the EM is playing with fire.
