Krugman Lays the Smack Down
Is it just me, or is Paul Krugman developing a rebel punk vibe? He just looks pissed, almost sneering, like Bob Dylan on Highway 61 Revisited. Maybe he should appear on shows in a leather jacket and a Ramones t-shirt. But, hey, when your day involves battling the inanity of the zombie hordes on tv, you'd get an attitude, too.
Great job in fighting back against the Republican onslaught. You can see how they're firing on all cylanders to stop Obama's budget stimulus from being passed. But, as is usually the case these days, we have the facts on our side. It's just a matter of getting in there and fighting it out. And that's something Democratic leaders should be doing every day. Obama has begun to fight back in the last couple days, and God bless him for it. But I honestly can't think of any other prominent names, except for Krugman here.
Pay attention, kids. One side is trying to stave off another Great Depression. The other side is holding a can of gasoline and lighting matches. If you don't want President Sarah Palin shipping your children off to Jesus Camp in the year 2013, you better pay attention and do something.
