‘Someone has an owie’: Matt Yglesias doesn’t like being outed as a crappy writer


Life is hard when you’re Matt Yglesias. You just can’t write stupid stuff and expect to get away with it anymore!!/SonnyBunch/status/407914673422356480

Yglesias is indeed in a foul mood, thanks to a delicious piece in The Federalist by CJ Ciaramella:!/FDRLST/status/407888414931816448

And there’s much, much more where that came from. The well truly is bottomless!!/PTD11/status/407906176857169920

It’s definitely possible that Yglesias is fully aware that he sucks and just prefers to deny, deny, deny. It’s also possible that he’s just really, really dense. In either scenario, he looks like a tool.!/johninUT/status/407905637691953152
