What other explanation could there be for deciding that he wants to run an op-ed by Sarah Palin about how Obama should “boycott” the Copenhagen conference?Well let's see if I can provide a clue to the clueless. At this moment, the Palin article is the number 3 most read article in the top 5 at Washingtonpost.com. Maybe the reason they ran the op-ed is because it's an opinion piece by a major, controversial political figure, and therefore almost guaranteed to attract a large readership. Generally speaking, running articles that bring in huge numbers of readers is exactly what you want to do in the newspaper business. I know leftists are pretty ignorant of basic economic matters, but you'd think even someone like Yglesias would understand that running a Palin op-ed is good business for a major newspaper. Then again, maybe he really is that clueless.
Could this be the dumbest case of tobacco piracy ever?
