There’s no point in picking on Ezra Klein any further over his whole “the Constitution is HARD” whine this morning — not after Iowahawk has done it.
Let it be known that the 500 or more word essay by Ezra (by Iowahawk) is EXACTLY 500 words long. Brilliant!
What I can’t figure out is how Klein has put together such a successful career while still quite young. He regularly embarrasses himself and his employers, he has shed any pretense of impartiality in his work, and he appears to be a thoroughly ordinary journalistic talent.
It can’t simply be that he holds all the right opinions, because so do millions of other 20-something idiots whose politics are little more than a fashion statement.
So what is it? What drives his professional success?
Iowahawk is a satirist of the first water. Very clever.
As for Mr. Klein, I suspect he is safe. Today beliefs trump performance, and if you anger the Left’s opponents and generate ample buzz you are deemed a pearl of great price.
