Jots with dots 2/26

Public intellectual: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/414404/msnbc-host-i-hope-trayvon-martin-whooped-st-out-george-zimmerman-brendan-bordelon Yeah he did that for about 30 seconds. He really showed Zimmerman there didn’t he.

Douthat argues the equivalency of Bush and Obama derangement… http://douthat.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/02/25/obama-derangement-and-bush-hatred/?_r=0 And as they say destroys Ezra Klein!

Chait is right. The administration is going to lose King v Burwell http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/02/why-the-new-lawsuit-wont-kill-obamacare.htmland it’s not going to DESTROOOOOY Obamacare. As they say.

I said that. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/02/meet-your-republican-2016-front-runner.html wire to wire, as they say. He’s not damaged by this last week, he’s stronger if anything.

    Ummm…well, douthat tries to make the case that Obama derangement syndrome is not all that different from Bush derangement syndrome, but i don’t think it in any way “:destroys” Ezra’s arguement. All he is doing is altering one small part of the arguement–trying to assert that it isn’t all that different from what went before. And i don’t think he quite makes that case, mostly because he has to make use of the financial melt down (which Bush caused and Obama inherited) and the bailouts (also started under Bush) to create an equivalency with the Iraq War. Further, both Klein and Douthat seem to forget where these “derangement” politics started–with Newt Gingrich, and the target was Bill Clinton. Remember Whitewater? Impeachment? Vince Foster?

    As for Chait–did you read the piece? Chait strongly makes the case that the Supreme Court will rule in favor of the Administration, and even if it doesn’t do so, that the GOP will be forced into fixing Obamacare.
