Angry liberals frequently suggest that I criticize both sides to make money. For instance, Eric Alterman published a letter in which a reader said my "pox-on-both-your-housesism ... pays the rent." Tell that to my bank account! The truth is almost exactly the opposite. If Spinsanity had been partisan, we might have gotten Media Matters dollars. Instead, I've made pennies per hour. Outside of a rapidly shrinking circle of celebrity pundits in the DC/NY establishment (Broder, Friedman, etc.), moderation doesn't pay. My ideas may be wrong, but they're based solely on conviction.
Alter-question: Whose whining about their own sad lives is funnier/more pathetic? The liberal hawks? Or poor (literally) Brendan Nyhan?
Stay classy, Eric!
