There’s a big piece rising up the Kos rec list right now detailing where Jane Hamsher’s PAC spent its money.? Very revealing.? Here’s where over $169,000 of the PAC’s 2009 haul went.?? Look at the last line.
Libertas LLC is Cliff Schechter’s outfit.? Here’s his full client list which includes Hamsher’s Accountability Now PAC (and hilariously, Progress Ohio!)? Not sure how Bob Brigham’s self-proclaimed $4,000 a month managed to slip through the cracks, but here’s how Jane Hamsher dealt with such questions, according to the diarist, Rogers Cadenhead.

Howie Klein from HuffPo left a comment here today as follows.
Tim, there’s a lot of legitimate anger towards corporate Democrats and towards Blue Dogs. Helping Republicans, though, is (AT BEST) naive. Today Digby had a great suggestion for using that anger towards helping elect BETTER Democrats ( Mary Jo Kilroy is a great example and there needs to be more Democrats like her, not more Republicans like Steve Stivers).

And we have a new Blue America page up that we hope people will use as a jumping off point towards helping elect better […]Full Story... →
Because I’ve got a video camera with her name on it.
The question, raised by Nate Silver and others: Is Firedoglake trying to scare vulnerable Democrats into retirement in order to kill health care reform? All indications point to ?yes.?

Snyder was at the top of that list, posted by FDL?s Jane Hamsher on Jan. 6. (One irony: Snyder is a fairly progressive member of Congress, and […]Full Story... →
They pay people to blog here; they manipulate the system to get on the rec list, including–as verified–using Twitter to drive people here to rec their posts as soon as they are made, regardless of what they contain.

Woohoo! ?I don’t know how many times I’ve been banned from DailyKos, but today’s banning coincides with receiving my first email from a whining Jerome Armstrong in more than 4 years. ?So awesome!
All because Jane Hamsher shit her own bed. ?And after I helped raise a huge sum of money for Jennifer Brunner on a recommended diary, one of many recommended diaries I’ve had at DailyKos since rejoining a month ago. ?If the DailyKos community wants to join with Jane Hamsher and teabagger Larouchies, go right ahead folks. ?We’ll still be helping re-elect Barack Obama in 2012, with […]Full Story... →
Proving that no good deed goes unpunished in Kos-land, I posted this diary today, and got flamed like a champ.
Ok, so I wrote a diary with a lot of invective in it against Jane Hamsher. ?I apologize to this community for the invective. ?I do not apologize to Jane Hamsher. ?Here’s why.Full Story... →
