I Hate to Criticize Another A-list Blogger, But...
I won't sit there and judge pop culture... I certainly won't let the sanctimonious women's studies set play that role on this site.
THEN, after readers questioned his word choice, he said THIS:
Hmm, after considering the early feedback, it seems most people... had a huge problem with my sweeping generalization of the "women's studies set". It's a fair critique... Sorry about that, [emph added] but not sorry about my broader point -- that being sanctimonious about this ad is no different than the sanctimony we decry from people like Lieberman, Dobson, and the Family Values Coalition."Sorry about that?" Well, well, well. It would seem that Mr. Kos still has a lot left to learn about running a big, successful Web community. Did you see what happened there? Sure, he nipped a so-called "controversy" in the bud, but while he was apologizing like a little girl, he was taking his eyes off the ball.
Sure, it's just one moment, but EVERY SECOND COUNTS for important A-list blogger activists like Markos Moulitsas and me. I need to talk to him about this--perhaps I will prepare a lecture on it for YearlyKos:
"A-list Bloggers Should DEMAND Apologies, NOT Give Them."
And if you disagree, you can get the hell off of this blog. Right now. I'm serious.
