  •  Since when has being wrong ruined a DC pundit's (3+ / 0-)

    career? I don't think he's making it up per say but I do think a lot of this is speculation by DC insiders. The whole raising rates but not to 39.5% seems impossible to me since it's the only option that requires Republicans to vote for a tax hike explicitly. I think this option is most likely being pushed for by corporate Democrats.

    Let's not let 2014 be anything like 2010. Republicans only win when we stay home!

    •  There's a difference between being wrong (0+ / 0-)

      in the sense of being a foolish analyst or prognosticator, or letting oneself be unwittingly used by some self-interested player without first checking them out--let alone passing on information that may be "wrong" but which you know for sure was ok'd from on high--and being wrong by making stuff up. Ezra may well have been wrong on all the former counts, but I seriously doubt that he's wrong in the latter sense. That's grounds for having one's career ended.
