#rsrh Paul Krugman admits madness in four words.

I’m honestly sorry to say this, but when you start your article with “Amanda Marcotte is right,” you’ve pretty much just taken your credibility, shot it in the back of the head, and are now frantically digging a hole to bury the corpse in before somebody comes to investigate the loud noise.

The ironic bit? Absent those Fatal Four Words, Krugman’s column might have been seen as a sign that the fever might be breaking: it can be summed up as Obama is actually… really, really uninterested in doing his job and isn’t any good at it, is he? That would have been great: not so much for Krugman’s sake – well, not for Krugman’s sake at all.   It would have been for the sake of all those more salvageable people who shared Krugman’s original delusion that we elected some sort of transcendent man-god in 2008.  Alas, this probably isn’t a harbinger of that, after all.

    Paul Krugman.

    Not knowing who Amanda Marcotte is, I clicked over to her original blog post. My God, I can’t remember a more incoherent “analysis” than this. And when I read the comment thread that followed, I realized to my horror that her mental infection has spread far and wide. Is this the fault of the educational system? Somebody should put a stop to these people.

    Ah, Amanda Marcotte. . . she who wrote the eternal phrase “cum guzzling booze hound” before joining the John Edwards election campaign. Good memories.

  • […] the ineffable (unspeakable) Krugman, Moe Lane has this, as excerpted by the indispensable Instapundit: . . . Krugmans column might have been seen as a […]

  • Steve S. says:

    Bookends: he ended the article with “But when has Obama given progressives any reason to believe they can trust him?”

    The answer is, of course, “never.” Not even in 2008, if they had bothered to look. But they trusted him anyway.
