The Democrats are Hiring Left-Wing Bloggers? Are They Crazy?

This is good news. Marcos of the daily Kos is quite upset over the fact that actual professional consultants are only talking to reporters about left-wing bloggers on an off of the record basis. This makes some amount of sense on the part of consultants; after all, Markos apparently threatened the livelihood of one Steve Elmendorf after Elmendorf spoke on the record about the “community” on the Daily Kos. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Dick Polman wrote this tidbit in the column cited by Markos, “they're amateurs trying to play like professionals. Yet we see all these Democrats starting to hire them, pay them for advice. It's crazy.” Crazy indeed, but it is no crazier than courting Michael Moore or Jimmy Carter.
