The Reincarnation Rejuvination of the Young Michael Kinsley reminds me of why I was such a fan


A Hypothesis
Will Wilkinson on the Sotomayor debate:

And I really don’t get why many Republicans have taken this opportunity to reinforce the already widespread impression that they are morally odious morons.

I see two options here. One option is that a large number of people who are not odious morons have, in the past, behaved in ways that garnered them a reputation as odious morons and have, unaccountably, decided to persist in that behavior. This is a non-partisan blog, so I won’t attempt to sketch the other possibility.


But Yglesias also has actual opinions of his own on actual policy and doesn't reflexively hide them.

Nice to remember a pretend liberal who was always a wild conservative who destroyed the editorial page of the Los Angeles Times among other destructive acts of supposed journalism. Beyond that, a wonderful person. Wuv, wuv, wuv.
