Damn I wish I could write 1/4 as good as Jon Chait. Here he is on the (much maligned by me) Politico's Mike Allen's inability to understand reconciliation (more on that general issue soon):
Does Conrad need to stop by Politico's offices with a picture book and
some finger puppets? I understand perfectly well how intelligent people
who don't follow this debate closely might not catch on to the
distinction. But this is what Mike Allen does all day — and, as I
understand it, much of the night and the wee hours of the morning as
well. How can anybody still not understand this?
