Krugman's Latest Post

Triumph of the dull

No comment:

In his CPAC speech, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that conservatives are more “interesting” and “fun” than liberals. Here’s his proof: “who wants to hang out with guys like Paul Krugman and Robert Reich when you can be with Rush Limbaugh?”

In comments the first poster notes that Rush would probably bring better drugs.

Headlines I Love to See-Link

New GOP Standard Bearer Rush Limbaugh Is Less Popular Than Jeremiah Wright

Max Blumenthal links to a poll that was conducted before the 2008 elections which explored voter attitudes toward a variety of subjects. While Rush enjoyed modest popularity among Republicans, among all voters he had lower positive ratings than either Rev. Wright or William Ayers. No word yet on how he stacks up against athletes foot and telephone solicitors.

Quote of the Day-link

I could probably offer a quote by Glenn Greenwald every day that he posts, but anybody can just read his column, and I highly recommend that, so I'll just glean the ones that really jump out at me, like this one........

And, just as a general note: if you watch cable television news during the daytime, you can actually physiclly feel your brain shrinking.

Krugman; Please Listen To This Guy-Link

Great post on Paul's blog today, he's calling for Obama to resist the urge to appease Republicans and just stimulate the economy already,
I thought this section caught the kernel of what he's been advocating for months now.

You see, this isn’t a brainstorming session — it’s a collision of fundamentally incompatible world views. If one thing is clear from the stimulus debate, it’s that the two parties have utterly different economic doctrines. Democrats believe in something more or less like standard textbook macroeconomics; Republicans believe in a doctrine under which tax cuts are the universal elixir, and government spending is almost always bad.

This Krugman fellow is a Nobel Prize winner in economics, ignore him at your peril.
