... to 'We Didn't Start the Fire.' CDS poster child "Rick" Hertzberg -- the misogynist bosom buddy of Chris Matthews, who spent the primaries energetically competing with Modo and Frank Rich in the parlor game of anti-Clinton snark and slander -- is now, like them, falling all over himself to pretend otherwise, to act like long-time Bill and Hillary admirers and to claim it was all those mean Republicans who said such nasty stuff. (And oh, the Dowdy Richness of the irony -- stop it, it Hertz -- to argue that when the Precious actually needs to accomplish anything, his only recourse is to call on the only people around who seem capable of actually acting and showing some spine -- the same people he trashed and slandered and from whom he and his minions at the RBC stole the nomination.)
Just give it up. You made your bed, and now we all have to lie in it.

But that cup may start to look a bit less than overflowing, too.
