Who’s up for a stroll down Memory Lane? Because have we got a doozy for you:

Ah, July 17, 2013. A day — and a tweet — that will live in infamy.


Oh, Matt. Bless your heart.

True story! Ace clearly agrees:

Because it’s just. That. Good.

Ooo, baby!

Meanwhile, a question for Matt:

And a futile search for accountability:

He’ll likely never admit to being dishonest and wrong, but there are just some things we know to be true:



Surprise! We totally didn’t see this coming:




Twitchy coverage of Matt Yglesias

  • NRPax

    Matt, when you are being beaten like a pinata, it’s probably best to step away from the keyboard for a while.

    • Canadian in USA ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      He’ll be back…he never learns.

    • Billie Slash

      He’s gotten a lot of “Participant” trophies since childhood. That’s all a liberal really needs. Facts, logic, and self-awareness are for others.

    • 2ifbyT

      Summer’s Eve called. They asked to please stop calling Matt a douche. it is hurting product sales.

      • https://www.facebook.com/pages/Captain-Americas-Wife/162958907243936 Captain America’s Wife

        LOL! I almost spit out my green tea when I read that! Douché…I mean, touché!

    • Noah

      im not sure you can say pinata anymore. isnt that racist?! yknow im being sarcastic though, right?!

    • V the K

      @mattyglesias It takes honor and integrity to admit when you were wrong. You apparently have neither.

  • ObamaFail

    Well, 3 months later and Obamacare’s implementation is a joke and even a lot of liberals who have seen how much that “free” healthcare is going to cost them, so nobody with a brain is loving it. You got anymore brilliant predictions you want to embarrass yourself with there, Matt?

  • peteee363

    I wonder if he tried to delete that tweet yet? and if he knows tweets are forever!

    • Jarhead83

      A third-trimester tweet delete?

  • nickdqwk

    Awesome just awesome, God I love twitchy!

  • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

    Is there a second for my nomination of AceofSpadesHQ for Commentator in Chief? Or shall we just make it a unanimous vote and appoint him for life?

    • Billie Slash

      Second. Enthusiastically.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        Motion carries….

    • jukin

      I’d have to give that to Iowahawk but Ace vice Commentator in Chief.

      • jeanie6

        I used to like Ed Morrissey, but I can’t get on his site any more so I withdraw his name. lol

    • jeanie6

      Ace is great but there’s too many comments. You give up reading them about half way down.

  • KateNE

    He should never be allowed to speak or offer an opinion again. But, the problem with stupid people is they don’t know they’re stupid.

    • Billie Slash

      He’s like that little token piece of salt pork in a can of baked beans–useless.

    • Paul

      which is why in the good old days we would just smash their ignorant faces in until they stfu. this was a highly effective strategy, especially considering the fact that all proggies are nancy punks.

  • crashentu

    Well that oughta wipe the Slate clean.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Other Matty Predictions:
    Feb, 2011 – “I see Northern Japan becoming the Riviera of the western Pacific in the near future”
    August, 2011 – “Going to double down on my Solyndra stock…this puppy is ready to roll. The Preezy said so!”
    July 1, 2013 – “Can’t wait to see Depp in The Lone Ranger – the mega-hit of the summer!”

    • Guest

      “Preezy, the scourge of al-Qaida, just drew a red line in front of Syria,
      boy, are THEY going to be scared”

  • http://macsen573.wix.com/overdrive Macsen Overdrive ✓re-rolled

    Shouldn’t it be “Yglostra-dumbass”?

  • Republicanvet

    Intellectual hygiene? Surely you jest.

  • Michelle ✓classified


  • pinupartist

    “implementation’s going to be great and people will love it”…You can almost hear the “Or else”, or the classic WWII joke, “you have relatives in Germany…?”

    What’s sad is it doesn’t matter that the majority hates it–the GOP establishment folded like a road map :(

  • Texan357

    If only there had been someone – someone, just one person! – around to warn us that Obamacare was going to be an unmitigated disaster in all respects.
    Oh, wait…

  • DrJedi001

    Yglesias lays down marker: Krush Groove will outperform E.T. at box office.

    • NRPax

      You know, f*&^you, man, ’cause time’s gonna tell on that one.

  • RumDoooogie

    I still want to see cooke take on his fellow brit musket morgan

  • jukin

    I’m pretty sure you have to be a stupid douchebag to be a leftist journali….. propagandist. Matt proves the rule just like all the others.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Yes we saw liberals all over TV last night touting the wonders of Obamacare and “how much Americans are going to love it, when it’s fully implemented”. Of course, when it bombs out, lib Dems won’t own it, then they’ll say, “well, the Republicans didn’t think of anything better, so we’ll just have to live with what we have now”. You should know how these wankers operate by now.

    • Paladin

      Leaving everything alone was better. Piling on more regulations would be better. Going to the veterinarian would be better. Moving back to bloodletting and leaches would be better…

  • GetItRight

    “hey guys, don’t you get it? Everyone loves ObamaCare! The demand for it is crashing the website. It’s those darn private insurance companies, who dragged their feet and sabotaged this rollout. They don’t want it to work because they won’t be able to price-gouge poor people and those with pre-existing conditions anymore. We just need to bypass them altogether. Single-payer, everyone! It’s the only answer!”

    Get ready for it. Because it’s coming.

    • jeanie6

      The day is approaching when we’ll all wish private insurance still existed.

  • Perplexed

    Isn’t Matt Yglesias one of those bloggers that Obama just told us not to pay attention to? With the whoppers this guy tells I can certainly see why the President would be concerned.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    “I think the post I was teasing holds up fine”

    Based on what? The dismal enrollment numbers, or the crappy website they didn’t bother to test until 9/24/13?

  • Teresa_Michelle

    Ha! Beautiful, as usual. I wish Ace gave classes. He so rocks.

    • DizzyMissL

      Masters Class in Snark:)

  • http://proof-proofpositive.blogspot.com/ Mike

    The marker Yglesias is laying down is the one he used for his “Will work for food” sign.

  • DizzyMissL

    Ace has such a way with words. I wish I had 1/50th of what he has in the snark department.

  • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

    What a tool.

  • Jeremy

    What a tool.He sure can’t get enough of sucking up to Obummer.

  • TocksNedlog

    Sylvia Browne has a better track record.

  • BeeKaaay

    Nelson Muntz says “HAW HAW!”

  • rssllue

    Matt does not know how to tease. He is clueless on so many levels.

  • Cmate

    Maybe someone switched his calendar to Mayan.

  • JD Son

    It’s kind of hard to step away when you have been drinking OFA kool-aid for a long time and been on knee pads sucking ofa c*ck for some time as well.

  • Kickass Conservative

    When’s Matty going to lay down his marker for that Jaguars/Giants Superbowl?

  • therantinggeek

    Dear Matt:

    Come back some other time when you can actually tweet something halfway intelligent.

    – TRG

  • Brian

    I notice that he didn’t say which people would love it.

  • Kaya Hund

    Matt’s gonna need some medical care — hope he’s been able to get through at the Obamacare exchange.

  • dogwonder

    Laying down the marker, is usually a term applied to “New graves” perhaps he was burying Obamacare when he made the quote?

  • $413815

    I like his knife-wielding, wearing a head scarf pic better.


    I for one am loving Obamacare so far. Shut down the government, making Democrats look like idiots, pissing leftists off.

    I love it!

    “Stupid is as Yglesias does, sir!”
