I AM PART OF THE VAST LIBERAL MEDIA CONSPIRACY….Matt Yglesias says he doesn’t need a job at TNR:

This site is being so well funded by trial lawyers, big union bosses, radical academics, dangerously out-of-touch feminists, race-hustlers, petty criminals, and friends of terrorism that I hardly need this TNR job. Frankly I don’t know how conservatives do it with their narrow financial base of rich guys, very rich guys, wealthy folks, and large corporations.

This is roughly the same base that supports CalPundit, I think, although my finance manager keeps all contributions hidden even from me, so there’s really no way to know, is there?

By the way, I’d like to mention that Matt presents one of my biggest challenges here at CalPundit. The problem is that he writes so much good stuff that I pretty much feel like linking to something of his every day, but that would get old, wouldn’t it? So from now on, just assume there’s a big banner at the top of my site that says “Matt Yglesias has some really good stuff today. Go read it.” OK?
