I did read all three pieces. In fact, I had read the first when it
first came out and have been having ongoing discussions on other lists.
In fact, I read the original Ezra Klein (which I found out about when
he tweeted it) way back July.
You think my difference of opinion is a reading comprehension problem?
I think there's many historical precedences that more easily explain the
political currents that than the loaded-word, speculative comments of
some navel gazing opinion piece.
