Why argue about when Romney left Bain Capital ? I think this is a legitimate topic for many reasons, but the main one is that Romney's demonstrable lies show us something important about his character. I have long guessed that Romney's campaign is vastly less honest than any Nixon campaign based on lies about policy proposals, Romney's flip flopping, and about what Obama has done. But the Bain lies are getting attention.
Basically this time Romney's claims are contradicted by official documents signed by Romney and by Romney's sworn testimony. This doesn't happen often. It is very newsworthy.
On other topics. Leave Glenn Kessler alone. He is clearly upset over massive criticism (much of it in his e-mail inbox I'm sure). He isn't dealing with the issue rationally. A few days of quiet might be what he needs.
Finally Brad DeLong had a dream -- he dreamed that the Washington Post had turned into David Corn.
