And what, precisely, does Nickolas consider "going nuts"? Was it my observation that Stein is one of the most liberal members of the State House? If so, then what are we to make of the fact that Larry Dale Keeling, who is of the same ideological stripe as Stein says, over at KyKurmudgeon:
And a more moderate majority leadership could help Lexington Rep. Kathy Stein, one of the most liberal members of the General Assembly...Does that make Keeling a "wingnut" too?
Perhaps it is my observation that Stein is "out of the mainstream" and that her selection would be a poor political move by Democrats who have been trying to avoid the label of "San Francisco Democrats" in a very conservative state. Does Nickolas seriously think that Stein is not out of the mainstream? Or that this is a bad political move for the Democrats? After all, he is in the political consulting business. Does anyone want to hire a man who can't see the politically obvious?
And by the way, can someone buy this man a thesaurus? If I had time, I would count up the numerous occurrences of "wingnut" on his blog, but, alas, I don't. It's just heartrending to think of all those poor synonyms out there feeling neglected right now.
