Paul Krugman Rationalizes Democratic attacks
Posted by: Jon Henke on Friday, April 25, 2008

Paul Krugman rationalizes...
But how negative has the Clinton campaign been, really? Yes, it ran an ad that included Osama bin Laden in a montage of crisis images that also included the Great Depression and Hurricane Katrina. To listen to some pundits, you’d think that ad was practically the same as the famous G.O.P. ad accusing Max Cleland of being weak on national security.
But wait. They were exactly the same. The "famous G.O.P. ad accusing Max Cleland of being weak on national security" was nothing more than an ad "that included Osama bin Laden in a montage of crisis images".

Paul Krugman doesn't even pretend to make a distinction between the two.

Stunning contribution, McPhillips.

Jon, as you well know, it is impossible to change the mind of a person who is rationalizing. The surprising thing here is not Krugman’s ability to rationalize, but rather the way that he does it - almost as though it were a setup for the Right to laugh about.

That was the merest ironic allusion to a post from yesterday that declared that some scientists are all scientists and therefore any scientists who disagreed with the some scientists who are all scientists are scientists who haven’t recognized that "the debate is over." I extrapolate.

And indeed the debate was over, with respect to that post, because the comments were closed.

It was sarcastic, not ironic. And, if the debate is so important to you, just post about it in your own blog. Don’t post irrelevant and indecipherable comments without even linking to the original thread.

Huh. O.K. I still think that there is an argument that the comment was ironic. But let me stipulate, for the sake of dispensing with that question, that it was merely sarcastic.

Now that that is out of the way:

Drop dead.

Given what Martin is talking about, this seems an interesting quote.

Funny, that was what puzzled me about yesterday’s post. It was an apparent response that did not link the other story from this site.. I didn’t even notice comments weren’t enabled (oops), though I wondered why nobody challenged any aspect of it.

No, but it did link to Instapundit. I am not sure why, as I did not see anything relating to the subject, and I am not about to search through the whole site.

There are a few men in opera who don’t mind doing beefcake. Friends and I used to joke that Samuel Ramey had a clause in his contracts mandating him baring his furry chest at some point.,
