Process over Policy, Pundits vs Political Scientists (II)

Slate lampoons the debate between political scientists and political pundits with the news as written by a political scientist. Brilliant:

Obama now faces some of the most difficult challenges of his young presidency: the ongoing oil spill, the Gaza flotilla disaster, and revelations about possibly inappropriate conversations between the White House and candidates for federal office. But while these narratives may affect fleeting public perceptions, Americans will ultimately judge Obama on the crude economic fundamentals of jobs numbers and GDP.

The whole piece is fantastic, definitely worth a read.
