A fight has broken out between the Daily Kos and MyDD, two of the most popular blogs in the liberal “Netroots” movement. The founders of the two blogs, Jerome Armstrong (MyDD) and Markos Moulitsas (DailyKos), coauthored the book Crashing the Gate back in 2006, and the members of both communities used to play well together.
