The Yglesias shuffle

If Matthew Yglesias were any part of a man, he'd quit ThinkProgress immediately, after Jennifer Palmieri embarrassed him on his own blog.

Yglesias had criticized a liberal group, Third Way, as offering "hyper-timid incrementalist bullshit," and then Palmieri (of ThinkProgress's parent organization) puts up a post at Yglesias' blog saying they have"partnered with Third Way on a number of important projects" and calling them "key leaders in the progressive movement."

I've quit better jobs than a non-profit think-tank gig over less provocation than that, and the fact that Yglesia accepts such a rebuke without protest -- well, it's kind of "hyper-timid," if not indeed "incrementalist bullshit."
