Jennifer Palmieri Blows It...

This was a mistake on many levels:

A Special Note Re: Third Way: This is Jennifer Palmieri, acting CEO of the Center for American Progess Action Fund.

Most readers know that the views expressed on Matt’s blog are his own and don’t always reflect the views of the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Such is the case with regard to Matt’s comments about Third Way. Our institution has partnered with Third Way on a number of important projects - including a homeland security transition project - and have a great deal of respect for their critical thinking and excellent work product. They are key leaders in the progressive movement and we look forward to working with them in the future...

And Angry Sam hits the right note in response:

I believe the post was a typo. It should have read:

Third Way are important power brokers and fund raisers, so we’re really sorry Matt called them out for having no policy proposals of weight or merit.

They don’t even have a softball team. WTF.

I, being a liker of hyper-incrementalist bullshit, like Third Way. But Matt doesn't have to. And Jennifer Palmieri should think very hard about how credibility is attained in retained in the twenty-first century.
