Probably because the "outcast republican" was voicing a common argument of the right wing. The argument supporting a position that has just been added to the GOP official party platform. Atkin is largely irrelevant, but the GOP is going through contortions to avoid talking about their official party platform of no abortions for the victims of rape. No abortions for the victims of rape is a losing position for the GOP and the GOP KNOWS it.

or does the obvious purity and kindness in your heart eliminate the need to thoroughly examine your position...

It's all you libs can do: just make up one straw man after another. You can never ever argue using actual facts. You'll do anything to keep from discussing the complete failure of your messiah Barry Obama.

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...
