Twitchy favorite @exjon makes us laugh quite often, but it turns out that the folks at Visa don’t quite get his style of humor. Dear @Visa, A Harvard-grad economics blogger just told me that accumulated debt basically never matters. Please stop sending me bills. #thx — jon gabriel (@exjon) February 3, 2014 @exjon Jon. All […]
So, are you?
Somewhere, Hayek is rolling over in his grave.
Slate’s economics blogger, Matt Yglesias, shared a money-saving idea for Amazon shoppers that he uses. Yglesias advises online shoppers to sign up for a program called “Amazon Mom” (even if you’re a man with no kids), create a fake baby name, birth date, etc., and enjoy the savings. What other shopping pointers might Yglesias have? […]
‘I almost puked': Matt Yglesias compares Paul Ryan to ‘a girl doing oral and anal'; Update: Yglesias douchesplains
He wouldn’t. He couldn’t.
Juuuuuuuust sit right back and you’ll hear a tale … a tale of Matt Yglesias at Walmart. The Slate economics blogger recently decided that the time had come for him to work past his “lifelong near-boycott” and venture into uncharted waters: a new D.C. Walmart. Matthew Yglesias loves the DC Walmart http://t.co/FQBJRvbINO — Jim Swift […]

‘Re-shilling click-bait': Matt Yglesias uses death of ‘Fast & Furious’ star to pimp 6-month-old column
@mattyglesias Too soon, man. — Khari P (@khariparson) December 1, 2013 Too soon, as well as too late, because the column Salon’s Matt Yglesias was re-promoting because of the death of actor Paul Walker is six months old: The fast, the furious, and the long-term erosion of American social institutions: http://t.co/1jcvetX3VZ — Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias) […]
We’re pretty sure that Slate’s Matt Yglesias is just kidding around when he asks if a tactical flashlight can be used to kill people. Still, he’s been confused before. Besides, what if he’s right? If there can be assault magazines, why not assault flashlights? That last @mattyglesias tweet confirms every Dem/Liberal/Progressive stereotype. What a dolt. […]
Oh, honey. Did you copy that straight out of your tear-stained diary? You know, the one with the unicorn on the cover. After taking to Twitter to discuss Obama’s tie (the most important part of the Iran deal announcement, evidently), Yglesias then uttered that absurdity about Secretary of State Kerry. @mattyglesias what achievements? — Mark […]
A modest proposal.
One problem: That’s not Hassan Rouhani’s actual account. @mattyglesias Fake, @HassanRouhani is the one supposedly his. — pourmecoffee (@pourmecoffee) November 16, 2013 Oops! The real Hassan Rouhani hasn’t tweeted since November 14th. In case Yglesias deletes it, here’s a screencap: The smartest boy in class fails again. Sorry, fake account. I’m a dummy. — Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias) […]

As Twitchy reported, Matt Yglesias is at the center of a web of ridicule over his tweet forecasting the inevitable success of Obamacare. And, well, that got tweeters to thinking: What else would “Yglostradamus” have been right about? So, friends, take journey with us as we look back at #MattYglesiasThroughHistory: @JohnEkdahl "Custer can handle that […]
Oh, Matt. Bless your heart.
Capitol Hill shooting instantly brings out douche reactions from Dave Weigel, Matt Yglesias and Markos Moulitsas
He doesn’t understand immigration policy; he seems to have some kind of animus toward Indian Americans; he has no idea what the IRS did wrong when it targeted conservatives; he thinks the national debt is no big deal; and he only recently discovered that long-term unemployment is a problem. Also, he’s a hypocrite; he thinks […]
What exactly is Yglesias trying to accomplish here, other than upping his douchebag factor exponentially?

Is he ever! Slate's economic blogger thinks tax rates are irrelevant to pricing. I need to sit down for this. — SunnyRight (@sunnyright) July 30, 2013 We should all probably grab a chair for this one. This tweet needs no introduction, except perhaps a warning to put a pillow on your desk before you slam […]
That often seems to be the case, but not according to Slate’s Matt Yglesias, who tweeted a link to an article at Slate entitled “The GOP’s Strange Obsession With the War on Women”: The GOP’s pathetic efforts to turn Weiner’s Weiner into a rebuttal to the “war on women”: http://t.co/zrEmLPnEYk — Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias) July […]
We might want to run that by MIT, NYU and George Washington University before breaking ground on their new locations in Detroit. For context here, Slate writer Matt Yglesias wrote that the city of Detroit suffers at least in part due to a lack of a major university within its borders: When you’re attempting an […]

OK, now you are just trolling Twitter, Yglesias! Again. Slate’s Matt Yglesias, who recently reached a new low, gleefully tweeted that he would be on MSNBC Monday afternoon.

Matthew Yglesias: ‘If you want to kill someone in America and avoid jail time, make sure to kill a young black man.’
We’re used to asinine tweets from Matthew Yglesias (see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, just for starters), but last night’s tweet may have set a new low. @mattyglesias @lisang majority of murder convicts in America have killed a black man — Oren Yaniv (@OrenNYDN) July 14, 2013 @OrenNYDN @mattyglesias and majority of those […]
Maybe someone should check on Slate’s Matt Yglesias. Only yesterday, after posting the cell phone number of a Daily Caller reporter who dared ask him about his hush-hush visit to the White House with some other liberal journalists and bloggers, he started to let on that he’d be publishing something about it Monday. He then […]
