Big-time blogger John Cole pitches a big, ol' thrombo (emphasis added) --
It Rubs the Lotion On Its Skin Or It Gets the Hose Again...Check out the big brain on Bob [Cesca]! He can wrap his head around every detail of Greenwald perfidy, real and mostly imagined, but that’s all he has room for! He can’t possibly also field a discussion about the actual NSA abuses- he’s just too fucking busy reaching for the fainting couch because some of the reporters involved just aren’t up to his standards. Drama Queens! Melodramatic fags! Suck on that, Ackerman and others.
-- over something that medium-time blogger Bob Cesca never came within a mile of saying:
Were it not for the melodramatic personal struggles of the reporters and their source, along with the link-bait and bad reporting that constantly demands careful inspection, we might be talking about ways to improve and reform America’s surveillance operations.
I'm going to assume that after a period of calm reflection, Mr. Cole will regain his senses and dial his hysterical, acid-in-the-eyes comments waaaaay the fuck back. And while this is a little deeper into the world of blogger pie-fighting than I like to get, I thought it was worth noting that the practice of mutilating criticism of Mr. Greenwald to the point where what-you-insist-it-says bears virtually no relationship to what-I-actually-wrote and then going loudly ape-shit over what has essentially become the product of one's own imagination is obviously not a bug of the Greenwald Horde, but a fully-supported feature.
