Hey, you guys, maybe it’s time to lay off Matt Yglesias.
After having a decade or two to think about it, Matt came to the conclusion that yeah, maybe Bill Clinton should have resigned. He probably thought that epiphany would give him some credibility with conservative Clinton critics. It didn’t. And now he has a sad:
I wrote an article about how I changed my mind about Bill Clinton and a million conservatives are throwing back in my face that 10 years ago I expressed a different opinion.

So now we’re supposed to leave him alone or something?

It really is so brave of you to coincidentally change your mind on Bill Clinton when he has no political power anymore https://t.co/J3vNcqs90d

That's because conservatives were mocked and ridiculed for having a different opinion all those years ago. It wasn't a polite difference of opinions.

Because we don't believe it is in good faith.
We believe it is only being used so you can now attack the GOP without being a hypocrite.

Welcome to the new rules. Your involvement in their creation will earn you little sympathy now that they're applied to you. https://t.co/hfj8t45N6j
