Dan Gerstein Hates You, Blogger
We haven't written a word on the John Edwards hired-bloggers scandal because it's stupid and boring, but that didn't stop Dan Gerstein. In today's Politico, he lays out his case: Liberal bloggers are stupid anti-Christian meanies who need to be DESTROYED. And they're bad for the Democratic party and Kos is a vampire, blah blah blah.
Dan Gerstein, of course, was Joe Lieberman's communications director during Joe's 2006 reelection campaign.
If you'll recall, when Joe's cheaply-hosted website crashed last August, the campaign promptly blamed it on a denial-of-service attack coordinated by evil liberal bloggers. That was apparently all Gerstein's idea!
This experience has made him an expert in how Democrats should never, ever trust or work with bloggers, because they'll just get you in trouble for making shit up. But no matter how much shit you make up, there's still a Washington paper that'll publish your whiny op-eds.
