Kos Kookiness

In case you missed it, Markos Moulitsas (aka Kos) put up a list over the weekend comparing American Christian conservatives to Islamic terrorists. Saner liberals like Pennywit and Jeff Jarvis are justly condemning his remarks.

Ace, meanwhile, thinks there's a double standard at work in this instance and prior ones where Moulitsas has jumped off the rhetorical cliff. From a media point-of-view, it's certainly true that liberal bloggers get nicer press than conservative ones, but I can tell you that Zunìga's intemperate remarks have made more than a few official Washington Democrats wary of him. His pathetic record as a strategist (every congressional candidate he endorsed in 2004 lost), hasn't helped him much, either.

UPDATE: Via Captain Ed, I learned that Kos is #52 in Bernard Goldberg's new book 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America.
