There are any number of things that I find amusing about this whiny rant from Mickey Kaus.

As a non-member of Journo-list, I want to say for the record:  it’s just a little too "the sky is falling."  

Honestly, the big "News at 11" is that liberals talk with each other?  Because the mighty conservative wurlitzer apparently doesn’t exist in Mickey’s world?!? Or is it that IOKIYAR?

Personally, I wonder if the larger agenda is that Mickey doesn’t have keys to the clubhouse? Don’t we have bigger problems to deal with these days than worrying about something this banal?

The funniest part by far, though? An attempt to insinuate that Spencer Ackerman is potentially led by the nose in a sort of groupthink cabal.


Clearly he’s never actually met Spencer.
