I've done a lot of picking on Glenn Greenwald over the past several months. The main reason for this is that I've always maintained that for all his incorruptible piety and supposed steadfastness in the face of the crumbling political morality of those around him, he -- like fellow left wing cool kids Jane Hamsher and David Sirota -- is only interested in one thing: making sure people pay attention to him.
Thankfully, nothing proves my point like allowing Greenwald to open up a little about himself in a personal interview like the one currently running in Out magazine.
Dana Houle over at Rooted Cosmopolitan dissects what Greenwald has to say -- and what it says about the reality behind his carefully constructed image as a better progressive than you. It's honestly must-read material.
