Your Supporters Suck

I've thought a lot about what Boehlert had to say about concerns about liberal bloggers channeling Drudgico type horseshit about Hillary Clinton. I think his basic point is important and correct, but he's wrong to make it an Obama/Clinton thing. One can certainly find pro-Clinton bloggers and commenters who do similar. Personally, I've tried to call media bullshit on both sides when I see it and as much us possible live by my basic rule of not reinforcing right wing narratives against Democrats. But I don't claim to be perfect or imagine that I always succeed at what I intend to do along those lines.

The key difference between the candidates right now is that Obama is winning, which makes piling on Clinton inappropriately a bit more unseemly.
