There is an interesting (very unflattering) profile of Daily Kos blogger Maryscott O'Connor in the Post. She has a response here.

I can't say whether the profile is fair to Maryscott O'Connor; but I do think that it is fair to the far left generally, in that it accurately depicts the rage that drives many (most?) posters and commenters on websites such as the Daily Kos, Eschhaton, etc.

At the same time, I have to say that while we normally think of excessive rage like this as not normal or unhealthy, its hardly an irrational reaction to the past six years. What other reaction can you have to a President who maintains his right to imprison any American citizen, on American soil, without trial; and to send him to other countries where he may be tortured?
