Ezra Klein = William F. Buckley?

I confess to knowing little about Ezra Klein (that is, aside from the reports about his keen wit and hard-eyed professionalism). But is he really, as Ross Douthat suggests "the William F. Buckley of movement liberalism"?

Wouldn't a much, much better analogy be that Klein is a liberal Grover Norquist?

Isn't it obvious that JournoList is a pumped-up virtual version of Norquist's Wednesday Morning meetings?

I think he was being respectfully ironic.
