Liberal Blogger Blasts Axelrod on Call

Obama advisor David Axelrod held a conference call today as part of a White House effort to enlist the help of liberal bloggers to fire up the base in the final weeks of the mid-term elections, but Greg Sargent reports that it didn’t exactly go smoothly:

Top Obama adviser David Axelrod got an earful of the liberal blogosphere’s anger at the White House moments ago, when a blogger on a conference call directly called out Axelrod over White House criticism of the left, accusing Axelrod of “hippie punching.”

“We’re the girl you’ll take under the bleachers but you won’t be seen with in the light of day,” the blogger, Susan Madrak of Crooks and Liars, pointedly told Axelrod on the call, which was organzied for liberal bloggers and progressive media.
