DailyKos founder Markos Moulitisas Zuniga did a great job making DLC Chairman Harold Ford look weak on this morning's Meet The Press. Towards the end of the segment, Ford, perhaps sensing that Markos had the better of him, reverts to Republican talking points (surprise!):

FORD: I want to do nothing more than ensure that progressive causes and interests are advanced. I want nothing more --and I know you do as well-want Democrats to win...We do nothing but help Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John McCain and Rudy Giuliani when we argue essentially over semantics...

MOULITSAS: Will you stop going on FOXNews and attacking Harry Reid for abandoning the troops, betraying the troops? Because you just did that a couple of days ago...

FORD: Markos, in all fairness, your site has posted awful things about Jewish Americans...

MOULITSAS: That's not true...

FORD: Your site has...now you have a site about...something about Cindy Sheehan, she uses it as a...she has a heavy presence there in talking about running against....

MOULITSAS: It's called "democracy." If you don't like regular people, hundreds of thousands of people...you're gonna have...

FORD: No, I love it...but you can't be critical of us...

MOULITSAS: Of course...you're not going to control hundreds of thousands of voices. Your organization has a dozen people, you CAN control that message. And you don't need to attack Democrats.

How many Lieberman Republican buzzwords to discredit Markos can you count? More with Markos to come...

Can you help us out?
