Framing the Narrative


Matt Yglesias on Twitter this morning:

Congressional Dems on cable this AM looked like the French retreating from Russia

This is just one way in which Twitter is making my life worse. As long as I kept the TV off, I probably could have fooled myself for a while into thinking that maybe Dems weren’t reacting quite as badly to Coakley’s loss last night as I had thought. Ignorance is (relative) bliss. But no longer. Apparently they really are bound and determined to take a serious but limited loss and make sure that everyone reports it as a massive referendum against everything that liberals stand for. Good work.
