For the record, my name is “Matthew Yglesias”:
This will annoy what’s his name who blogs a lot about me. Has he nothing better to blog about? Actually, that’s how makes a living: by writing about people who are smarter than him and know more about the world than him. And since neither smarts not knowledge carry much cachet; with the left blogosphere (also not with the right blogosphere) its stars like what’s his name ridicule the writers whose arguments he can’t quite grasp.
In my next life, maybe I’ll try to take a more respectable path to media prominence, something like using my wife’s money to buy an established magazine.
