Forgive me for not caring a fig about the firing of Matt Bruenig or the twitter storm of vituperations between him, Neera Tanden, Joan Walsh, & other “leftists.” It reflects the morass of lesser evil politics when personalities take center stage from the imperative political questions of the day like war & occupation, refugees, sweatshop economics. The fact that racism & misogyny are involved in the twitter furor does not make it more relevant but only exposes the tempest in a cesspool.
