Brooks Jackson strongly endorses the use of the chained CPI, describing it in the first sentence as “a more accurate cost-of-living adjustment.” To push his case, Jackson seriously misrepresents the evidence.

I was on PBS’s To the Contrary with McCain adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer, who did her best John McCain impression and lost her cool when his “100 years in Iraq” comment was mentioned.
Atrios was right — it makes them instantly and inexplicably irrational. Nancy starts repeating “factcheck.org” like McCain made the comment in Chinese or something and people couldn’t understand what he meant without a translator.
Use “100 years” and “Iraq” in the same sentence and I think people get the idea.
