Kevin Drum is so fucking stupid that it’s hard to understand how someone can breathe and be so fucking stupid.
I know, it’s pointless, because his whole schtick is showing how young people are just somehow pretending to be broke, and that therefore nothing at all should change.
I love how this (actually decent) economist calls Drum’s hokum “data free” and makes Drum look like the complete assclown that he in fact is:
One of the great things about twitter is that data-free arguments have a decent chance of running into someone with actual expertise who can just create and tweet the correct graph in a few minutes. pic.twitter.com/AK9Q19HewM

Drum is what motivated reasoning looks like in combination with not understanding your own data, not realizing when someone else is far more an expert than you are, and in addition you are a huge fucking dipshit.
