Ezra Klein originally shared:
"If I sound biased, that’s because I am. Biased toward the actual record, not the spin; biased toward a president who has conducted himself with grace and calm under incredible pressure, who has had to manage crises not seen since the Second World War and the Depression, and who as yet has not had a single significant scandal to his name. 'To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle,' George Orwell once wrote. What I see in front of my nose is a president whose character, record, and promise remain as grotesquely underappreciated now as they were absurdly hyped in 2008. And I feel confident that sooner rather than later, the American people will come to see his first term from the same calm, sane perspective. And decide to finish what they started."
Oh shufb, how I miss thee. The intel AVX instructions are nowhere near as cool for convolutions, especially this 40 tap monster I'm doing.
