The absolute trouble with absolutism

Bob Kerry, the former Democratic senator from Nebraska, plans to run for his old Senate seat. But for some liberals, his moderate credentials and openness to compromise is a problem. To wit:
“I hope he gets carpet bombed. The more Republicans spend in Nebraska, the less they’ll have to go after Democratic Senate candidates who actually act like Democrats,” said Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the influential blog Daily Kos. “And if it turns out he needs the help, then too bad. F—- him.”
Hmm. Moulitsas (pictured) just reminded me again why I stopped reading the Daily Kos. I admit, however, that it must be fascinating to see the world strictly in black & white as Moulitsas clearly does. Too bad it's utterly worthless in a technicolor world.
