I recently received this message from Leslie Thatcher, literary editor of Truthout:
When Robert Gibbs castigated the "professional left" - and when Rahm Emanuel used a far more offensive term to describe liberal administration critics - I proudly identified our little band of renegades at Truthout as among their targets. We have not "moved on" from demanding justice against war criminals and banksters...
Okay, Leslie. Where were you in 2008, when we were trying to warn the left about Obama's history of corruption and deception? Where were you when we "premature anti-Obamists" were assailed with insults and death threats?
I haven't "moved on" either.
