RedBull's & ATM's
Steve Elmendorf, a Democratic lobbyist who advised Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign said this in the Washington Post:
"The bloggers and online donors represent an important resource for the party, but they are not representative of the majority you need to win elections," said Steve Elmendorf, a Democratic lobbyist who advised Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign. "The trick will be to harness their energy and their money without looking like you are a captive of the activist left."

WTF does that mean? So the only thing we represent to this nitwit is a couple of cans of Red Bull and a shit load of ATM machines. I'll have more on Jim " the Pool Boy" VandeHei's article later. Let's just say, it's another work of fiction that is being passed off as journalism. Just read the title of the piece: "Blogs Attack From Left as Democrats Reach for Center," and that tells you what you need to know, but please read the article since any time we complain about something the MSNBC's of the world think we don't actually watch Hardball.

Matt Stoller has a great piece posted about this story
