And People are Surprised by Hamsher Why?

World, she put a picture of Joe Lieberman in blackface up at Huffington Post, because it was more important to her to score political points against Lieberman than it was to not be an enormous asshole towards people who weren’t even involved in her little spat.

Her judgment has been obviously suspect and her motivations obviously fucked up since then.

So why, again, is her recent behavior so shocking? How is this not just more of the same?
