All Right, Everybody Quit Making Fun Of Matthew Yglesias

Yglesias cannot be held to account for mistaking the Paul Ryan for the Congressman who engaged in insider trading after the 2008 housing meltdown:

Public Servant Drool Bucket
Man who cares about his country Useless sack

To the best of my knowledge, ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran has offered no explanation, much less an apology, for the allegations of day trading made in Schweizer’s book. I’m sure it was all ‘ethical’, by the standards of Nancy Pelosi’s Congress, if whiffy.

Prof. William Jacobson plays the Sheldon Whitehouse card. Just leave a little room under the bus for ‘Gentleman’ Jim, eh?

You might think that only an abject moron could mistake the two, given the facts, but ease up: everybody looks the same, if you spend your day in a Lefty Media Gimp Suit. So, a little forbearance is in order.

    I don’t know what he said, and don’t really care – to me the biggest question is why anyone would read him for a second time.

    You should see when philosophy major Yglesias tries to discuss economics.

    Hilarity ensues.

    If we weren’t supposed to make fun of him then why would he write the drivel he does?

    He’s a stereotypical liberal, a metaphorical six-year-old.  Earnest as all hell, but every fact wrong.

    Precisely. Hence the ‘Lefty Media Gimp Suit’ riff.

    Seeing as how Matty is not technically classified as ‘developmentally impaired’ is it safe to call him a retard?

    Because he is a retard.

    Unlike the developmentally impaired who, you know, have real challenges and are doing the best they can.

    If we weren’t supposed to make fun of him then why was he born?

    Because everyone likes to read fiction? They need a good laugh?

    I wonder if the Leftists that have stolen America right out from under us watched that Liveleak video of the Syrian Roof throwing contest yesterday?  Govt “workers” the World over should be forced to watch. This the future of the Demoncrat Party unless they make a 180 degree turn and very soon.  Not likely from the kool-aid drinkers..
