"Don't politicize Obama's decisions to downplay Ebola and continue letting in flights from Liberia made for political reasons!"

Says the dude who runs what is basically a left wing propaganda site & posts articles calling GOP "Cranky Oldster Party" LOL @mattyglesias

It's only partisan when we do it RT @lachlan: Shot: https://t.co/vAop75veCg Chaser: https://t.co/TsJUOpOlIQ

@mattyglesias I missed the part where you mention the GOP and budget cuts. Will that be included in the followup?

— Sean Agnew (@seanagnew) October 16, 2014

Matt Yglesias writes about how Ebola became a partisan issue and never once mentions Democrats blaming it on budget cuts. #WhyVoxIsCrap

— RB (@RBPundit) October 16, 2014

Dear @MattYglesias, how is it you wrote an entire post about how Ebola became a partisan issue and never mentioned the Agenda Project ad?

— RB (@RBPundit) October 16, 2014

Good question.

@RBPundit Because @mattyglesias is a hack?

Ding ding ding!

On last night’s “Hardball,” Chris Matthews hosted a discussion on the Metropolitan Opera’s highly controversial production of “The Death of Klinghoffer,” based on the murder of a Jewish man by PLO terrorists. The opera has provoked a lot of anger, including from members of the Jewish community. So, naturally, Matthews turned to the Jewish expert on the panel:

Those hoping for awkwardness won’t be disappointed (starts around 1:56 mark):

( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe_form = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-form-be1d7c1106147747b26e4a8c0e5162e9-5446bad8b4d3a’);
var iframe = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-be1d7c1106147747b26e4a8c0e5162e9-5446bad8b4d3a’);
if ( iframe_form && iframe ) {
iframe_form.submit();
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
‘msg_type’: ‘poll_size’,
‘frame_id’: ‘wpcom-iframe-be1d7c1106147747b26e4a8c0e5162e9-5446bad8b4d3a’
}, window.location.protocol + ‘//wpcomwidgets.com’ );
}
}

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {
var origin = document.createElement( ‘a’ );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( ‘wpcomwidgets.com’ !== origin.host )
return;

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( ‘object’ !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type )
return;

switch ( e.data.msg_type ) {
case ‘poll_size:response’:
var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id );

if ( iframe && ” === iframe.width )
iframe.width = ‘100%’;
if ( iframe && ” === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height );

return;
default:
return;
}
}

if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( ‘message’, funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( ‘onmessage’, funcSizeResponse );
}
}
if (document.readyState === ‘complete’) { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( ‘DOMContentLoaded’, func, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( ‘onreadystatechange’, func ); }
} )();

Chris gonna Chris!

Guess sometimes that’s enough.

Heh.
