I have a weird relationship with that blog. There's a lot of craziness, but it's also frequently interesting and you have no choice but to take it seriously because of how thoroughly right-wingers have infiltrated the legal system during the last 40 years.

Matt Yglesias ‏@mattyglesias 7m
Excited to be pursuing some new opportunities in the near future with @MelissaBell, @EzraKlein, & @DylanMatt — more details soon.

Matt Yglesias ‏@mattyglesias 3m
Excited about the next thing, but I’m very sad to be leaving @Slate and its amazingly creative, brilliant, funny, and fun team.

Yglesias seems like a dude whose work is strongly influenced by the editorial environment he works in so a dose of Ezra Klein earnestness will probably do him good. A lot of my political views are strongly influenced by his blogging, but he's gone off the rails with the snarky/contrarian/#yuppieproblems Slate mindset.

I agree. I stopped reading MoneyBox for the most part in the recent months.

That said, he's got some good ideas about housing that I think would legitimately be useful if more people understood the situation, and he's a good, readable conduit for that sort of information dissemination. I mean, I suggested The Rent is Too Damn High to my dad, if that is indicative of the layman level to which Yglesias can appeal.

In fact, Yglesias and Klein are a perfect fit for one another, tonally. Hopefully they live up to the juggernaut force that I think they are capable of being.

Hmm, turns out this guy who named his site "Wonkblog" is a bit of a dork.

I laughed but I don't really see there being a competition here. The same dorks (i.e., us) will read both.
