Poor Matt Yglesias.

The liberal economics blogger for Slate thinks he knows more than you. So when people began predicting that the Obamacare exchanges might not get off to such a great start, he was there to correct them.

“I wanted to once again take the opportunity to lay down a marker and say once again that Obamacare implementation is going to be a huge political success,” he wrote in July on his blog.

But so far, the implementation of Obamacare’s online exchanges have gone anything but swell

Some interesting comments on the thread... like

I think "liberal blogger" is just a euphemism for "unemployed guy with art history degree living in mom's basement." --- hmm...seems quite plausible... :D

This guy looks like a queer. No wonder he’s a cheerleader for our Faggot-in-Chief.

Matt Yglesias prediction:

1895: Heavier than air machines are impossible:

1946: Television won’t last. It’s just a flash in the pan.

1955: Rock&Roll? It will never catch on.

1963: The Beatles have absolutely no future in show business.

1968: Men will never land on the moon and return to earth, alive.

1972: Computers for home use will never become popular. The average person has no need for a computer in his house.

1980: No one will ever need more than 640KB of memory on their home computer.

We all know people like this (mostly libs). In Middle school band class, my new music teacher proudly proclaimed "the Beatles are a flash in the pan, won't last more than a year!" when the Beatles first started performing. As I graduated a few years later, all the students were laughing at him because he was such a loser.

I refuse to believe that Journolista Yglesias could ever be wrong about anything. He's just too smart and stuff.

I remembered all the warnings about so little snow up here in Pennsylvania, funny thing is, they underestimated how much snow would fall, not to mention how cold it would get each time. I guess it could be a stretch to say that humans abolished the winter season.
