Slamming Republicans and Conservative Bloggers
In the middle of an unexceptional tribute to the late liberal blogger Steven Gilliard, Matt Bai manages to slip in a few digs:
Black conservatives like Steele infuriated Gilliard, who couldn’t understand how any African-American could support a party that exploited racial prejudice.
They must have been confused when Gilly’s online pals, sickened by the way some right-wing bloggers were gloating over his death, advised them not to disclose where he was buried, out of fear that someone might deface the site.
Anybody remember any right-wing bloggers "gloating" over Gilliard's death? I know a lot of people were ticked off at his "Sambo" picture of Michael Steele, but I can't imagine a significant righty blogger who would have done anything other than express sympathy for his friends and family at his passing.
