Jason Furman, another Obama-era alum who now loves to get media attention for trying to undermine Biden's economic plans, contacts the media because he was not getting enough credit.

 

 

Nate Silver, whose main shtick here and with the lab leak theory is now joining right wing broadsides against "experts," is amplifying him in attempts to further gaslight Democrats into opposing the economic plans.

This is just pathetic. These economists continue to have much of the political world at their fingertips, with Politico, Silver, Matthew Yglesias, etc. pushing hard for them, yet they are actually comparing themselves to those who were blacklisted, driven to despair and death. Beyond shameful.

Hounshell is getting ratioed to the depths, despite the usual attempts by the right to astroturf the issue on social media. It's going to be another tan suit for the public and go nowhere outside the right and Beltway hacks.

I had wondered why Dave Weigel was trending, complete with people who keep putting their photos beside his to show how ugly and fat they think he is compared to their gorgeous selves (which kind of sucks, but Twitter is Twitter, sadly).

 

 

I do think Weigel has some good insights, but he can never stop being an edgelord, even though it's pathetic enough to see a teenager acting this way, let alone a 40 year old man. And similar to when he decided to amplify virulently homophobic tweets from Virgil Texas, I have not noticed any of his "dirtbag left" pals bothering to step in.

Dave Weigel is a useful idiot for the dirtbag left and always has been. Any time he approaches realistic insight he double-checks it with them to make sure he's still cool. He is not a good barometer for rational progressive thought online.

Gosh, maybe when someone completely erodes their credibility over a 5-year period, while never owning up to this at any stage, they're never going to get it back!

We're in a genuinely terrifying moment in our history, and yet the response of so many in the media continues to be begging people to love Maggie Haberman and insisting anyone who doesn't hates women.

Matt Taibbi (has he ditched crazy-eyes Halper?) finally, proudly admits he is one with the right...only to get incredibly pissy when called out for what he actually said.
