Daily Kos Delays Its Secret Plan to Destroy the DLC

A few weeks ago, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga of the Daily Kos (a far left blog), wrote that he was going to take on the Democratic Leadership Council and make it "radioactive":

Ultimately, this is the modern DLC -- an aider and abettor of Right-wing smear attacks against Democrats. They make the same arguments, use the same language, and revel in their attacks on those elements of the Democratic Party that seem to cause them no small embarrassment. Two more weeks, folks, before we take them on, head on. 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.

My original post on the subject can be found here.Well, it looks like Daily Kos has decided not to enact its secret plan for the time being:

And since people will ask again

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.

The window has closed for now.

Too bad. It would have been fun to watch. Those hurricanes sure can be inconvenient.
