One has to wonder how Ezra Klein got where he is at the WaPo and other periodicals. I write to Fidelity about them posting his article as the LEAD where he stated "deficits don't matter". My question to them was - who is Ezra Klein that he should be listened to by anyone serious? And I pose that now. The man has no credentials that make him a person to be heard as knowledgeable in any subject. The same hold true with Mr. Ransom's comments about him. Because Klein apparently doesn't know anything, this is the kind of statements he will make.

He got something published somehow, probably by being a raving leftist who attended one of the approved universities. Then he got something else published by quoting a published author (himself). And so on ad nauseam.

Ezra Klein tells readers of his “wonk” blog that he doesn’t read his own work.

Ok, he doesn’t actually say that, but he certainly implies it: “I actually can’t recall running into a piece in which the argument is so carefully written,” writes Klein “as to mislead the reader without, in most cases, being entirely untrue.”

There it is. Case close. Ezra Klein says so.

Klein either doesn’t read his own work or he has a short-term memory problem.

Klein of course was referring to someone else, not himself as I facetiously suggest- in this case, historian Niall...
