Who Is Glenn Greenwald?
Dan Riehl asks that question and finds some interesting answers
:New York Times best selling author Glenn Greenwald appears to have written a book in an attempt to lecture American patriots on how to act politically when his primary and preferred residence isn't even within the United States - it's actually in Brazil. Perhaps How Would An Expatriate Act would have been a more fitting title.
Greenwald turns out to be gay (and let me say to his credit I did not know that from reading his blog), probably no longer a lawyer, and probably didn't work as long at a major law firm as he claims. And you know, the irony is that the resume doesn't really matter in the blogosphere. Oh, yeah, there are some credentialists, but for the most part if you can write and make a decent argument people will link/read/comment. It is only when you are claiming particular expertise in a sophisticated area that you need the credentials.
Ace discounts the possibility
that Glenn uses sock puppets to comment on other blogs pointing out the brilliance of Greenwald and battling against the forces of darkness that is the right-wing blogosphere.
