Matt Yglesias has, apparently inadvertently, revealed the core principle guiding his thought process:
It makes perfect sense, of course, when you think about it for a minute. But in general I hadn’t.
Emphasis mine, everybody.

I'm sure he would emphasize those points too, if we promised to give him some crackers & Cheez-Whiz.

Jeez, at least no one wastes money paying me for my inane blathering.

Matt Yglesias is the liberal Jonah Goldberg. Both are well-educated idiots who've risen to positions of prominence within their field based on nepotism and an ability to remain stubbornly, doggedly, even fanatically ignorant about any subject to which they devote their attention. Ill at ease with thought but convinced that trading talking points with like-minded zombies counts as reflection, they're both born pundits.
