The Fox News situation, where Obama went on Fox News and mismanaged communications, drew criticism from Moveon because taking down Fox News has been a key strategic goal of that organization; nevertheless, the group supported him because of overwhelming adulation from their membership.
If anyone at MoveOn thinks that that organization can 'take down' Fox News, they're even more fucked up than I thought. And if Stoller takes this 'strategic goal' seriously, he's an idiot. Stoller describes his political activity as 'partisan hard edged combat,' which makes me think he should (1) ask Markos what actual combat is like, and (2) grow up. 'Mismanaged communications'? By which Stoller means we're supposed to give a damn that someone in Obama's campaign said he would 'take on' Fox News, and we're supposed to be disappointed that Obama didn't pour cayenne pepper on Chris Wallace's bare scrotum. Don't know about Stoller but I, for one, have already had this monologue, thanks.
Matt Stoller is resentful, and he's not stupid. Let's not mistake his posture for wisdom.
