• Ezra Klein vs. Joe Lieberman

    How many could say this:

    At this point, Lieberman seems primarily motivated by torturing liberals. That is to say, he seems willing to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in order to settle an old electoral score.

    and then back it up with good arguments, based on credible data (to the extent it exists) and the historical and political record? Moreover, how many could do all this before noon while working up four other excellent posts on other issues in health care, climate change, and financial regulation?

    Ezra Klein can and did. If you’re not reading him you’re missing some important journalism, and not just on health policy.

    Unfortunately, though Klein wins the argument this morning, Lieberman still holds the 60th vote.
