Citizen Stengel, Concern Troll, Tells A Fib
And I am not talking about Casey Stengel, but rather Rick Stengel, Time Managing Editor, who got called out by Ana Marie Cox on his embarrassing performance as a Kewl Kid. But Stengel's reply to Cox is worse:
In reading your reaction to my comments on Chris Matthews, I realize that I've been caught out speaking as a citizen rather than as editor of Time.
I had no idea Citizen Stengel had been invited on to the show. I could have sworn that Matthews introduced him as the Managing Editor of Time, not as Citizen Stengel. But it gets better (worse):
[A]s a citizen, I think it's unfortunate and perhaps short-sighted for Democrats to be perceived as focusing on the past rather than the future. If people see the Democrats as obsessively concerned with settling scores, that's not good for the Democrats or the country.
Perhaps Citizen Stengel can talk to Managing Editor Stengel and make sure this FALSE talking point does not become the new narrative at Time Magazine. Citizen Stengel is a unique "concern troll" in that he can actually do something about his "concern."
