INTIMIDATION: IT WORKS. Ezra described today's Richard Cohen joint as a break with recent precedent, but his previous column on Hillary Clinton was also good, solid liberal stuff. The two columns before that were the Stephen Colbert ones that got everyone upset. Cohen may not have enjoyed being attacked by the digital lynch mob, but in Garance's terms, the mob seem to have been successful in getting Cohen to start playing for Team Blue instead of antagonizing it.
