(Newser) – Hannah Giles—best known as the conservative activist who dressed up as a prostitute for a video sting operation targeting ACORN—holds twentysomething liberal journalists in generally low esteem. The young on the right are "thinking types," vital and numerous, while most on the left are “professional foamers” or “automated liberal-spewing machines.” The exception is Newsweek columnist and Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein, who is cogent—and dreamy. "Will you make me dinner one evening?" Giles asks Klein.

Giles certainly does not agree with Klein’s political views, but she gets “where he is coming from,” she writes for Big Journalism. And he “doesn’t just parrot what the leftist elites in Washington are saying.” He can cook, and Giles used to want to be a nutritionist. So, she challenges Klein, “Let’s put our ideas to the test and see who wins.” Watch out, James Carville and Mary Matalin.
