Someone pointed me to Jim Pethokoukis’ twitter feed on the tax deal. At first I thought so what, some RedState commenter is writing dumb stuff about Congress on twitter? But this clown is actually the Money & Politics columnist and blogger for Reuters. Say what you will about the business and economics editor of the Atlantic but her twitter feed isn’t this dumb:
What is there to say here? Why are conservative columnists so often fanboys for their own crazy cause while liberal columnists are concern troll for theirs?
And why is someone this dumb given a column at a place that is also smart enough to give one to Felix Salmon?
