Sad news: Doug Mataconis of Outside The Beltway has passed from this mortal coil.
Doug was an interesting character, someone with whom I rarely agreed as he was a self-proclaimed libertarian, but when I did agree with him, it was virtually 100% agreement. He was funny, though, quick-witted, enjoyed life and it showed through his writing, and at the same time frustrating because he loathed the modern GOP and would write posts excoriating them and then veer off and say something to the extent of “but the Democrats are no better” and all I could think was “YOU WERE SO DAMNED CLOSE.”
All that aside, from my interactions with him I can say he was a good man and will be missed.
And from OTB itself, an excellent illustration of structural racism, & CRITICAL RACE THEORY.

Last but not least:
“If it’s bad, I say it’s fake. If it’s good, I say that’s the most accurate poll ever.”

Now we know who we can trust.
