We expected Newsweek to hire Markos Moulitsas. That wasn’t much of a surprise. And I certainly didn’t think they’d hire someone to counter the Daily Kos founder, or if they did, it would be someone like Andrew Sullivan.
Well, I was wrong. And on this day you could hear millions of heads belonging to nutty Leftwing freaks exploding in unison.
However, this does grant an enormous amount of credibility to Marcos. Just think, he’s gone from a Lefty Blogger with a big site to a man who’s the counter-balance to a former Presidential adviser– and adviser to the nefarious Bu$$$$hitler, nonetheless.
That’s the message Newsweek is sending– the Nutroots are equally as important as a #1 Presidential Adviser.
