So much for retirement
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, July 12, 2007

A certain someone has been warned that due to her upcoming electoral challenge of a sitting Democrat - the Speaker of th House in this instance - she's no longer welcome to post on Daily Kos:
I can't post here anymore because my potential run for Congress is not on the Democratic ticket.

I have been deeply grateful for all of your support over the years.

Your love and kindness helped me through lots of sleepless nights at Camp Casey '05.

If Speaker Pelosi does her constitutionally mandated duty and I don't run, then I can come back and post.

I know a lot of you are hostile towards my candidacy. Please
understand that I am doing it for your children and grandchildren (and my surviving ones.)

Love always,
Of course, Kos is perfectly within its rights to ban her since they've made no bones about the purpose of the sight ... to help elect Democrats. And, as she points out, she's not a Dem.

But my stomach did a little quiver when I read the message .. uh, please Cindy, keep my children out of it ... and my grandchildren. They, and I, want absolutely nothing from you. Nothing.

Huh. She’s stopped saying that she’s doing it all for her dead son, and started limiting it to her surviving children.

Anyone else notice the comments rationalizing the decision to boot Sheehan because Kos is "SPECIFICALLY a Democratic blog, with the purpose of electing DEMOCRATS"

I’m sure you all remember when the Kos Kids supported Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman. And refused to support Bernie Sanders. Good Times...

I love it when they start to turn on each other.

If Cindy Sheehan comes within decent pistol range of any kid I ever have, I’m going to end up claiming self-defense of decency and sanity to the arresting officers...

If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail...Daily Kossack is a nutroot arm of the Dhimmicrat elite, not a tribune for the people.

Political hacks come in all sizes, even short-round south-of-the-border runaways like Markos.

Just dived over and read it.
Has she been banned from posting or has she been banned from posting about her campaign to unseat Pelosi? My understanding (only from the comments) is that it is the latter. Still dumb, but not the same dumb.

McQ - I guess this means you are not going to invite her to be a co-blogger here? Could be entertaining. Perhaps you should reconsider.

Not sure what the official policy is for non-conforming views at Kos. This is what they say on the Kospedia FAQ:
The dKosopedia is written from a left/progressive/liberal/Democratic point of view while also attempting to fairly acknowledge the other side’s take.
I x-post over there occasionally, with perspectives that are generally not in the progressive wheelhouse. No one has invited me out yet, although a commenter suggested I be castrated today.
