How Big A Jerk?

It so happens I am not a big fan of Michael Crowley's work - his dismissiveness of the Netroots in particular - but Michael Crichton's attack is so below the belt that it is jaw dropping.

What a jerk.

    ...any of these guys disparaging and insulting people ostensibly on the same side.

    I love to see the fractures in the icy heart of the GOP and I hope Crowley and Crichton will continue to insult one another and drive wedges even further between them.

    We already knew that the rethugs ate their young and cannibalized their elders, but this is too sweet to NOT enjoy: bush's chief scientific consultant savaging a GOP shill. Fight on!

    "Though he didn't say so publicly, Bush is a dissenter on the theory of global warming....He avidly read Michael Crichton's 2004 novel State of Fear, whose villain falsifies scientific studies to justify draconian steps to curb global warming....Early in 2005, political adviser Karl Rove arranged for Crichton to meet with Bush at the White House.  They talked for an hour and were in near-total agreement.  The visit was not made public for fear of outraging environmentalists all the more."
