Reconciliation

Recap: The gridlock-and-debt index; maybe the climate bill was always doomed to fail; and Kent Conrad has some ideas for a deficit-neutral stimulus package.

Elsewhere:

1) Yuval Levin's five favorite books.

2) White House considering an infrastructure bill.

3) Why Ben Bernanke isn't doing more.

4) I'll be on Rachel Maddow's show tonight talking about the death of the energy bill.

Recipe of the day: Quick pickles, the wrong way.

Ezra,

When you are on the Rachel Maddow show tonight, could you wave at the camera so I will know which one is you? You both have the same hairdo, the same metro sexual wardrobe, and you both use the same liberal rhetoric. I have trouble telling you two apart.

Thanks

Gee, maybe Maddow will want to talk Journolist. Yeah, right!

Are you still working here? Is a certain Time writer giving your fellow J-listers credit when he lifts their work and puts it in Time (not that he would do that, wait, I think he admitted to it).

There's something ironic and tragic about those who bemoan any loss of freedom they perceive or imagine being the first ones to bash and/or threaten to physically injure people they disagree with (as well as slander with cries of "racist"). Those same individuals on your list actively worked, apparently, as a tool to help elect a President after they created and nuanced their messages and sought to intimidate and punish those who didn't toe their line. If they want to be journalists, so be it. If they want to be PR consultants, then join a firm. But don't peddle the propaganda as journalism, it is not ethical and causes major problems.

And a high-ranking individual in Human Rights Watch actually helping to create a message to work against a VP candidate based on her sex? Is this what goes on in the name of "Progressive" ideals?

Yeah, "nothing to see here" parrots the media. No, actually, there is quite alot to see and glare at once the rocks are lifted and there's nowhere left to run. And that's the great thing about Democracy, in case Journolisters forgot. Information and a battle of all ideas is the best detergent for filth, not only those ideas and messages a small cabal of self-important individuals feels is best for the "unenlightened" masses. Take a civics class, it might help explain why the vast majority of Americans have had their fill of nonsense and aren't taking any more, thank you.

Anyway, let me know who the "Chosen One" is for 2012 so I can watch the amazing cabal at work! Can't wait, you're all so very bright, unlike the rest of us dullards outside the elite 400 and press clubs. Keep on spewing the hate, it's so, well, good for waking the slumbering masses. Too bad we need to be fed a message, because none of us outside the 400 have the ability to think and reason for ourselves (or at least in line with the wise ones' views).

So, Ezra is still employed at the Washington Post! Telling -

Here are Mugshots of some of the JourNoList members:

The unbearable whiteness of being on Journolist (important update)
Thomas Lifson

The left wing cabal to manage the news known as Journolist is apparently guilty if one of the cardinal sins of the left: lack of diversity. Big Fur Hat, the comic genius who posts regularly on iOwnTheWorld.com, has assembled head shots of the publicly identified members of the listserv group, and guess what?

For everyone who attacked Ezra. Give due to young Ezra. When other Jurnolists now hiding from the public eyes he is proud of his enterprise. Yes, I am lying manipulating scam but I am progressive scum.

Let Washington Post keep him. Everyone knows who Ezra is and what to expect from him. There are still several % of hard left in America. Washigton Post needs Ezra for this audience.

Isn't hateful and duplicitous racist and anti-Semite Put Buchanan still on TV screens and in the newspapers across the country? So make space for Ezra. Their ideology is different but their characters the same.

So is it true that you and your buddies have recreated the Journolist so you can coordinate your response to the denigration of the old Journolist? As a reporter you should be ashamed of yourself and it is a wonder that the Post continues to pay your salary.
