I am in the process of working on a broader piece regarding the split between the so-called activists versus the more incrementalist wonks on the health care bill (focusing particularly on the ludicrous notion of a possible netroots and tea party convergence -- holy fucking dimestore Marxism, Batman!). In this narrative, it's the true-blue lefties as embodied by Jane Hamsher and others at Firedoglake, the kosacks, Glenn Greenwald, the Huffpost, and (maybe) Atrios versus the more tepid and technocratic -- Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, Josh Marshall, and Nate Silver, among others.
