Deus ex machina - Mighty Mouse flinches
Remember how Kos was going to wage war on the DLC? Remember how he made theatrically vague threats like this?
Two more weeks, folks, before we take them on, head on.Remember how then more than two weeks went by without Kos saying jack shit about it?
No calls for a truce will be brooked. The DLC has used those pauses in the past to bide their time between offensives. Appeals to party unity will fall on deaf ears (it's summer of a non-election year, the perfect time to sort out internal disagreements).
We need to make the DLC radioactive. And we will. With everyone's help, we really can. Stay tuned.
Well now, finally, three weeks later, Kos lets us know, not even in a regular post but in a comment to one of his posts (HT: Blogometer), what happened to his would-be war:
I've laid off the DLC for the time being. The Katrina disaster has not only made this sort of intra-party fight a bit counterproductive at the moment, but it has refocused the allies and media I was going to engage in the campaign to the more important task of getting to the bottom of the disaster on the gulf coast.What a huge sigh of relief the DLC must be breathing! Imagine - it came this close to being obliterated by Mighty Mouse! (Did I say Mighty Mouse? I meant Kos. My mistake ... doesn't Kos remind you of Mighty Mouse, though?)
The window has closed for now.
Luckily for the DLC, Katrina intervened, and they live to sell out progressives for yet another day.
...I'm sure it's just a matter of time before Mighty Kos shows 'em who's boss, though.
