- Unsolicited defense of Elizabeth Warren by Writer and MIT Professor Thomas Levenson
- Unsolicited defense of Elizabeth Warren by Mike Konczal, a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute and well-known as finance writer in the blogging community.
- Over at The New Republic Noam Scheiber seems to like Miss Warren's probability of appointment.
- Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Dish blog makes a post noting Noam Scheiber's article on Elizabeth Warren with the headline Good News, Everyone.
- Of course all of Elizabeth Warren's colleagues at CreditSlips blog are quietly pulling for her to get the job they know has her name written in neon lights all over it.
- Richard (RJ) Eskow defends Elizabeth Warren and questions The Atlantic's "Business Editor" for her inability at math and problems handling figures in the billions because the "Business Editor" of the major magazine said "The calculator on my computer won't go into the billions, and I truncated incorrectly." Aawww!! You Poor dear!!!
- Shahien Nasiripour reports that NOW (National Organization for Women) is asking if President Obama's obvious reluctance to nominate Elizabeth Warren is due to to sexism. Nasiripour quotes NOW in the Huffington Post: "If confirmed, Warren would protect consumers from further economic meltdowns caused by shady loans and credit," NOW wrote in its e-mail to supporters. "She would also demand accountability and consumer-friendly practices from Wall Street banks. But she's not part of the old boys club, so NOW asks: Could sexism be at work in denying her this position?"

The Nomination of Scholar and Consumer Advocate Elizabeth Warren: Why Wait To Make A Sound, Solid, Sure To Be Well-Received Decision?????
I feel bewildered why a magazine with the history of The Atlantic magazine carries on unawares while the person with the title "Business Editor" continues to embarrass and shame their publication week after week after week. But I tend to be the lazy type. And I am not as classy as Thomas Levenson and Mike Konczal are, and cannot work up the inclination to explain sentence by sentence by sentence the noxious rubbish that The Atlantic's "Business Editor" spewed out regarding a person made of much better fabric than herself. I just have to hope most readers can easily see through the "Business Editor's" shallow logic.
