Matt Needs Money

Matt Yglesias is now soliciting contributions (DC is very expensive and being a young writer for The American Prospect does not pay much). I couldn’t decide if I should just quietly give him a few bucks or use the awsome power of my blog to send a deluge of cash his way.* Then I read this on Matt’s blog:

Representative Issa’s motives in funding the recall are beyond my understanding, but I think what’s really going on is that people understand that even a syphilitic goat could have beaten Gray Davis in 2002. Nevertheless, the GOP chose to run not a goat, but Bill Simon, and they lost.

That’s gotta be worth a few bucks.
