Publius / Obsidian Wings:
Stay Classy Ed Whelan  —  So there you have it - I've been officially outed by Ed Whelan.  I would never have done that to my harshest critic in a million years, but oh well.  —  And to be clear - the proximate cause was that Whelan got mad that I criticized him in a blog post.
Steve Benen / Washington Monthly:
CLASS ACT, ALL THE WAY.... On Friday, publius — Hilzoy's Obsidian Wings co-blogger and someone I've known for several years — had a blog post criticizing something National Review's Ed Whelan wrote.  As blog criticisms go, the piece was acerbic but hardly outrageous — Whelan made an observation …

A.L. / The Anonymous Liberal:
Ed Whelan Completes His Descent into Hackery  —  I've been debating all day whether or not to respond to this act of astounding immaturity and intellectual cowardice.  On the one hand, this “outing” hits pretty close to home.  In addition to being a long time reader and admirer of Publius' writing …

Obamanomics: How Stupid Do They Think We Are?  —  Pretty stupid.  Watching Fox News Sunday, I caught a panel on which Obama economic advisor Austin Goolsbee conceded that the administration had previously predicted unemployment would top out at around 8%, that it was now up to 9.4% …

The Reckoning  —  Obama Versus the Way of the Universe  —  I wish the President well, but he is butting up against human nature.  And that is a fight one cannot win.  If one runs up nearly a $2 trillion annual deficit, and then persists in such red-ink to the point of adding another $9 trillion …
Peter Bradshaw / Guardian:
