After reading Ana Marie Coxs (Time/Wonkette) puff piece on Markos Screw Em Moulitsas, here are the top 5 things I didnt know.
1. Since backing Ned Lamentos successful primary effort against Joe Lieberman, Markos considers himself to be the Netroots King-Maker. This after his personally endorsed candidates had previously gone a combined 0 - 16. [Note to Wonkette and The King: Primary wins are one thing, but if Lieberman wins the General Election, that makes you a combined 0 - 17 in elections that matter.]
And, this was priceless:
The day after Lamonts win, Moulitsas came to lunch in a Lamont T-shirt. But he fumbled when a woman walked over to our table, pointed at his shirt, and said, Can you tell me anything about that guy other than hes antiwar? He couldnt.
2. Markos pulls down about $600,000/year from Daily Kos
3. He plans on stopping his blogging duties at Kos next year.
4. His next idea? To build leftist cultural outposts all across the midwest. a chain of giant meeting places replicating megachurches for the left complete with cafés and child care.
5. Hes short, really short.
