Way to go Ari!

Personally, I'm tired of hearing the media-hyped bullshit over the "outrage" the progressive blogosphere have with the recent Obama appointments.

Thankfully, Ari Melber gave the slapdown to this nonsense as well as called out the "anonymous" source in the politico Lieberman article who claimed that Joementum's pardon solidifies the notion that the anti-Joe movement is a joke.

MIKE VIQUEIRA: Let me ask you this, Chris you know..I'm sorry, Ari. Chris Cilizza, the Fix blog in the Washington Post, quoted a Democratic aide who said about bloggers and the Lieberman vote, quote "They can rant and rage but they still do not put the fear into folks to actually change their votes."

You know, I work on the Hill and I've heard that sentiment expressed many times over again, that the netroots -- the liberal blogosphere -- overestimates its influence. What do you say to that?

ARI MELBER: Well, number one you have to look at the source. There you have someone who isn't even going to speak on the record, under their own name. That would suggest some fear right there, hiding behind anonymity for a very basic claim to the Washington Post. And someone who sees themselves potentially -- I don't know the person because they won't stand up for themselves -- but potentially a competitor with the liberal blogs. Maybe it is from a congressional office that has had conflict -- maybe it was a Lieberman aide, we don't know because that person won't say. But I do think you have competition here.

He shoots, he scores!

Dan Malloy: Is he running for governor or not?

Is he in is he out? That the question that comes to mind when I think about Stamford mayor Dan Malloy and the 2010 governor's race.

Although Malloy gave very clear indications earlier this year that he intends on running for the state's highest office again, after watching his reaction to Attorney General Richard Blumenthal hinting on running (again), I guess we'll have to wait and see on what happens next year.

Here's Malloy's interview from Face the State:

A REAL Democrat!

Picture 4
Given the screw-job the senate Democrats did to everyone who voted for change by their sucking up to Joe Lieberman, it was refreshing to see the person I voted for in 2006 on the airwaves today...
