I'm glad to know that Dr. Jill Stein has time not only to reply to the barrage of establshment-Democrat hatred she faces in social media, but to generate her share of noise. As of this moment, he is her most recent in a whole chain of tweets spaced about 20 minutes apart.
You'd think she was running for something, or perhaps just gearing up for another campaign. She could lie low and enjoy having made some history, but she's practicing her political medicine both defensively and aggressively instead.
Of course, the more Dr. Stein tweets, the more she invites attack, not just from high-profile operatives like Neera Tanden, but also from street-level Democrats who accuse her of working for the Putin-Trump axis because they can't envision actual Americans of their own volition attacking the Democratic Party from the left. The vitriol of some of the replies to Stein's tweets from aggrieved Democrats is palpable.
Fortunately for us in the bleachers, Caitlin Johnstone has collected Stein's exchange with Tanden (minus replies from the rabble) and reproduced it on Medium. "Pwnage" is often in the eye of the beholder, but this beholder believes that Stein pwned Tanden big-time. For confirmation, I noticed that the replies from Team Tanden diminished in quantity and causticity after Stein's "Girl, do you even Google?" burn, and Team Stein's replies smelled like victory.
Oh look, Jill just posted another one 20 minutes after the last:
