Ehh. Lefty pundits are often dolts. This is *news*?

I have to admit: watching Pejman Yousefzadeh demolish Matt Yglesias like this is enjoyable, but I really can’t see that it’s really all that great use of the former’s personal, valuable time.  I’ve long taken the view that the single-combat mindset that takes place across a lot of the political blogosphere is pretty counterproductive, at least for the Right; time we spend confronting the Left’s bloggers and pundits is time that we’re not spending confronting their owners who actually run things.

Seriously: Yglesias was interesting to read when he was a kid going to Harvard who also blogged.  That was his hook.  Now he’s a guy who got hired by The American Prospect and was promptly reconfigured into an interchangeable liberal op-ed writer with an Ivy League background.

Big whoop.

PS: If Pejman merely enjoys smacking Yglesias around: that is, of course, a different story.

    Yggy is an ignorant, pompous, dirt-for-brains left-wing hack.

    As such, he’s is one of the best the Democrats have to take up the banner of “progressivism” for the next generation.

    The penalty imposed by the Universe for the mistake of wanting to be a Walter Duranty or a Joe Conason … is to succeed.
