As a friend of mine delicately put it over email, OH MY GOD!
I don’t want to spoil it for you, so just go. Go. GO.
Disclaimer: The images you are about to see are merely historical recreations of what might have transpired based on meticulous research and the public record.
This needs to be its own web series. I am willing to bankroll (but only if I get to play Yglesias).
“Explanatoryianism.” This made my day. Go Santino!
To go along with the top hat, invest in a monocle.
Fake Herzog is jealous of the genius of Fake Yggie and Fake Piketty.
Warby Parker sells a monocle with this perfect description:
“Crafted in a perfect circle with just the right amount of grip and give, our Colonel monocle is the perfect accessory for budding robber barons, post-colonial tyrants and super villains.”
Sadly, I suspect Yglesias’s natural response to this (awesome) satire would be composing a Moneybox column entitled: “How would mandatory nudity for our politicians improve democracy/equality/web analytics?”
