03/04/2005 Archived Entry: "DailyKos blogawarms Greenspan"
DavidNYC of DailyKos has announced the next target upon which the blogosphere is to be unleashed: Alan Greenspan, that former intimate of the Objectivist circle who headed the Fed for so long.
As DavidNYC explains, "We should hunt down anything Greenspan has ever written, said or done that reflects poorly on him. This would include erroneous predictions, older statements which contradict things he's said recently, and anything that's just plain wrong, venal or stupid. The only rules are that it has to be true (of course) and sourced (preferably with a link, but if you're using Lexis, that's cool too - just tell us where it's from). And for those of you who want to really get down & dirty in the trenches, we can turn this into a one-degree-of-separation venture. That is, if you can find similar material for anyone who is closely linked to Greenspan, that's fair game, too. Good examples would be Greenie's idol, the nutbag 'objectivist' Ayn Rand, and Andrea Mitchell, his NBC reporter wife. (An aside: We can debate the merits of this approach all you like, but suffice it to say, there is no question that Republicans do the same crap to us all the time. If you still want to play by the Marquess of Queensberry rules, fine - but I've moved on to brass knuckles.)" BTW, DailyKos is one of the few blogsites that actually has the "gravitas" to pull a co-ordinated and successful blogswarm on someone. AMERICAblog and DailyKos were instrumental in bringing down Gannon/Gluckert, for example.
