Cranky Smurf


To say my day was annoying would be an understatement.

I have spent the past 8 hours dealing with FEC filings which is just as painful as it sounds – if not more so considering the task was dropped in my lap last night and everyone who had access to the information I needed to actually get it done was celebrating Yom Kippur and unreachable.

It was a bad day to be a bad Jew.

Then there was this which ticked me off enough to get me post the rare midday contribution to AMERICAblog.

And then this popped up.

We’re not “Medicare-for-all.” We advocate a choice of private or public insurance coupled with regulation. When I called and then emailed The Nation to get them to correct the error, they insisted it wasn’t an error.

I’m with the campaign; I tell you it’s a mistake; and you tell me I’m wrong?

Considering the reporter never bothered to pick up the phone and call me – and the magazine’s defense is that the reporter “interpreted” the characterization from language on our website – I’d go with my credibility on this one.

I’m just saying.

Basically, it was a lousy day to mess with me. I’m in no mood.
