Nice try on turning the tables, but you’ll notice that I could have gone with Jane’s second, and far classier sentiment directed at Senator Reid, but I didn’t.
Sorry if I’m bursting your bubble, but I voted D and Green.
The thing I don’t particularly care for (and you don’t either) is this constant, over-the-top belittling directed at those with differing opinions. Both here and over at Greenwald’s place. And Jane and Glenn clearly set the tone for their followers to participate in juvenile insult fests.
For example, Surprise Loser #6:
They should be checked immediately for kool-aid stains down to the butt cheeks.
That’s what passes for intellectual analysis around here.
Stay classy, Jane.
Yes, it does. Jane sounded like a foul-mouthed, grade-school punk in that infamous rant against Harry Reid.
But that’s how she often operates against those with whom she disagrees. Her and her cohort, Glenn Greenwald, haven’t realized that publicly and prominently belittling people is no way to win converts to a cause.
Now why don’t you ask Jane if her obscenity-laced tirade against Harry Reid made her feel better?
“You’re a chump, you see. You’re really fucking stupid.”

Who’s the chump now, Jane?
