As the world burns

Krugman sounds like a broken record these days, along with Atrios and a thousand other economic realists who see the problem and can't seem to break through the noise of the smug pundits to reach the people on the street that aren't grasping how seriously wrong our overlords are and how dangerous it is to follow their advice.

Krugman runs down the depressing list of relentlessly wrongheaded assumptions and failed strategies -- again. Doesn't seem fair that the GOPers and their allies can succeed in planting their lies in the public mind by endlessly repeating their deceitful narratives while the dirty hippies who have solutions that would work can't get their obvious truths into the discourse. We're just too outnumbered to break through the din.

At this point, on the eternal question of stupid or evil, definitely leaning towards evil this week. Nobody could be that stupid.

Oh, I don't know. Stupidity is like dark matter. Can't see it, can't really define it or know where it comes from but it rules the world of matter.

Read a letter in the local rag this Sunday that proclaims that all our economic woes come from "too much dependence on government."

As long as the marginal morons can have fun and feel important pretending to have the answers the snake oil party hands out, there's no way to stop it. The funniest thing is that most of these chattering chimps are on Social Security and Medicare.

Not saying the stupid isn't out there. Just that the overlords aren't the stupid ones.
