So, Kaus thinks Atrios might be Sid Blumenthal and Reynolds thinks he might be Bob Shrum. Which just goes to show that Reynolds would fit in will with the kool kids Kaus hangs out with since one of the cardinal rules of the kool kids is that, if a major story breaks, it MUST have come from within the circle of kool kids or their political associates. The idea that just some average schmoe (that's a complement Atrios) could cause this much ruckus is just, well, inconceivable. This reminds me of the speculation amongst the kool kids about whether it was Joe Conason or James Carville who was behind Media Whores Online (sadly MIA since the election, but hopefully it will return after the new year). Will they never learn?
