The honor of Markos “Screw Them” Zuniga hath been besmirched so she sent her flunky, Howard Wolfson, to avenge him. It’s part of her bold new nutroots ass-kissing initiative, the centerpiece of which is attending Yearly Kos while skipping the annual DLC convention, which the AP confirms this morning she intends to do. Here’s the whole strategy in one line, which Wolfson somehow managed to croak out with a straight face:

“Unfortunately, with all due respect for you, the days where you can dictate where Senator Clinton and other Democrats go, who we talk to, are over.”

That’s straight out of Silky’s playbook. The cold front between Hillary and the nutroots has nothing to do with O’Reilly and everything to do with her own relative centrism and image as a consummate establishment politician. This is Wolfson’s hamhanded attempt, a la Silky and his Coulter fundraising ploys, to rally progressives to her side by leveraging their animosity and “resistance” fantasies towards a right-wing boogeyman. It’s the VRWC in microcosm.

Clever of Bill to read him some of their choicer comments about his boss, though. Unfair, too, but clever, and justified insofar as all Hillary shills deserve to squirm for pandering to these cretins. This one’s for you, KP, wherever you are:
