Matt Yglesias comments on the Blumenthal story thusly:
For quite a long time now people have been urging Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal to run for hire office [sic] . . .
Yep; he wrote “hire office.” Check out the attached screen shot, and be sure to click on the link to see the typo before Yglesias fixes it.
The typo isn’t the worst part of the post. The worst part is when Yglesias tries to tell us that the political problems that will be faced by Connecticut Democrats as a result of the Blumenthal scandal are “irrational,” and that it’s a shame that voters just don’t understand that “[i]f you live in Connecticut and you generally like Barack Obama’s legislative agenda that Blumenthal—or almost any other Democrat for that matter—can be counted on to reliably support said agenda . . .” Betcha that outrage concerning Blumenthal’s lies would be considered entirely “rational” by Yglesias if only Blumenthal were a Republican.
