    Oops! Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Daily Kos, has discovered that his endorsement can be political poison. Such was the case with his endorsement at the beginning of this month of the very liberal Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, in the New York 23rd CD special election: Club for Growth darling Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party line, and has even garnered the endorsement of Fred Thompson. The guy has legitimate traction, fueled by the fact that Dede Scozzafava, the Republican, is actually the most liberal candidate in the race. (Heck, she has run on the very liberal Working...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Top lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding more information from the Homeland Security Department about medical treatment provided to illegal immigrants detained in the U.S. Recent news reports have detailed insufficient — and in some cases negligent — medical treatment for immigrant detainees over the past five years.

Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat who has held one hearing on the topic, said details she has heard about detainees'...

    After reading Ana Marie Cox’s (Time/Wonkette) puff piece on Markos “Screw ‘Em” Moulitsas, here are the top 5 things I didn’t 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 Lamont’s win, Moulitsas came to lunch in a...

    CELEBRATED LIB STRATEGIST HAS SHADY MARKET PAST Jerome Armstrong, the political strategist who followed a famous Internet fundraising effort for Howard Dean in 2004 with a book on "people-powered politics," has a sordid past as a shill for a worthless dot-com stock. Armstrong, 42, touted a dubious Chinese software company, BluePoint, beginning in 1999, without disclosing that he accepted "below-market" shares in exchange for the glowing reports he posted on a site called Raging Bull, according to a 2003 civil suit that named him as a defendant. "Armstrong posted over 80 times on the BluePoint message board located on the...
