OMG: JournoList Banal Insanity Revealed
Your editor must type this quickly before your other editor(Newell!) wakes briefly from his stupor and rushes to post this himself: Mickey Kaus somehow killed enough people (this is why he never drinks at parties) to get an actual (?) e-mail chain of banal nonsense from this Leftist Kabal "JournoList" email forwarding thing. And it's terrible. Far worse than the parody your Wonkette editors composed in two seconds, within our own Secret Chat Room. Witness!
(DANG, Ryan Tate already got this posted. Medal of Freedom for him, we suppose. But he missed the SUPER SEXY part we shall share with you here.)
The whole thing's terrible, but we'll just focus on this single email, which has been helpfully redacted here and there by Kaus in the most puerile, amusing fashion:

But I agree with Jon that the tendency to lapse into name-calling, or making broad assumptions about people who aren't on this list, seems at minimum like it's not the best use of our time, and at worst, unworthy of this very smart, very funny community. It bothered me when folks where making totally unsubstantiated comments about [REDACTED!--mk]'s sex life, and it bothers me when folks make [REDACTED] jokes. To be clear, I'm totally open to legitimate commentary on the substance of anyone's argument,
and people should get smacked down if they lie, if they get things wrong, etc. I think analyzing Peretz's writing about Mexicans, or Palestinians, or whoever, is totally fair game. But saying that [REDACTED] clearly must not have a girlfriend, or speculating about who [REDACTED] gets turned down by sexually are not arguments. We wouldn't take similar statements remotely seriously if they were made by conservatives about anyone on this list.

So, it's just a bunch of libtard bloggers emailing each other in the lonesome night, with occasional complaints about how Marty Peretz does not care for these Mexicans, and Eric Alterman is .... well, exactly like he is in his public writings.
