Apologies to Kevin Drum



Text  



In a post late yesterday I laced into Drum for things that I should have ascribed to Greg Sargent at the Washington Post. Someone had sent me an email of Sargent’s post but I didn’t realize the formatting was all screwed up and I ended up thinking Sargent’s comments were part of Drum’s. As I was having page-loading problems, I just relied on the email after a too cursory check of the original sources.  Drum and I obviously disagree, but the part I most sharply disagreed with was not from him but from Sargent (which shouldn’t be too surprising) and stringing the two arguments together made a hash of what Drum was actually saying. It was an honest error, but an error nonetheless. I’ll try to clean up the mess below.
