Genuinely hubristic to get a behind-the-scene look at how successful people work, find it to be somewhat contrary to your expectations, and then leap to the conclusion "this proves they're all secretly idiots." I mean, maybe but at least consider the opposite conclusion. — PolitiTweet.org

But here we get out of the real of tedious economics and into the feels — there’s an idea that I am too much of a cold hearted technocrat to understand that student loan debt is in fact a form of uniquely odious economic burden that calls for a tailored remedy. — PolitiTweet.org

I'm not a big fan of the early advertising strategy, though in the specific context of 2022 it may have been smart to bolster Dems' numbers over the summer to prevent panic. At the end of the day, though, ads are pretty potent but they fade fast. — PolitiTweet.org

Distinct from error, one reason I think current polling is underrating Democrats' odds is that Dems have spent a lot of money on early ads to "define" their opponents while the GOP is holding their fire for after Labor Day. They will get a boost when they hit the airwaves. — PolitiTweet.org
