Countdown Names Critic of “Krugman and the Firebaggers” a Worst Person in the World

Last night, Keith Olbermann named Ray Sandoval, the New Mexico director for OFA (Organizing for America aka Obama for America), as the Worst person in the World — well almost, he won the bronze medal.

Sandoval is the one who sent around a blog post blasting Paul Krugman and the firebagging left.

 

OFA Director Attacks “Firebagger Lefty Blogosphere,” says “Paul Krugman is a Political Rookie”

I’m not sure what to make of this. Sandoval’s dismissive response to Terkel indicates that this wasn’t an “oops” moment, and that OFA believes this is a sound political strategy.

Atrios says, “politicians gotta do what they gotta do and if attacking the Jane Hamshers Of The Left and KRGTHULU is the way to get money, love, and votes, then more power to them….If.”

I totally agree, if they’re doing this because they think it’s a good campaign strategy, do what you have to do. The qualifier, of course, is the if.
