Paul Krugman Wants To Spend So Much Money, For Fun

The New York Times‘ Nobel laureate beardclown Paul Krugman has quite a Keynes Boner in this morning’s column. He wants the Obama administration to flood as much money as possible into the government and not to be dandies about Debt. You know that famous socialist president FDR? Well he was a pussy: “One of these prejudices is the fear of red ink. In normal times, it’s good to worry about the budget deficit — and fiscal responsibility is a virtue we’ll need to relearn as soon as this crisis is past. When depression economics prevails, however, this virtue becomes a vice. F.D.R.’s premature attempt to balance the budget in 1937 almost destroyed the New Deal.” Sure! If the Chinese will pay for Obama’s non-lame New Deal, then hey, why not, rock ‘n’ roll, where’s my refundable tax credit already?

National Review: Liberals Hate Palin For Not Having Abortions

No matter how many times the liberals answer this question, conservatives continue to ask in conjured bewilderment, “why all the anger at Sarah Palin?” The liberals’ answer — that she’s not qualified to run anything but pretends that she is via an unprecedented streak of nasty, horrific lying — well, that’s a load of socialist poo; why do they really hate her? Is it her accent, or her vagina, or just the fact that she’s too perfect for liberals to comprehend? Definitely, all of that, but the major reason mean liberals hate Sarah Palin sifts below the surface of the warped liberal psyche, as Kevin Burke writes in a stunning new National Review article: since all liberals have had several abortions, they hate Sarah Palin (and apparently Bristol!) for not having abortions. This is a real article. Read more on National Review: Liberals Hate Palin For Not Having Abortions…

Jonah Goldberg: Why Is Ex-Slave Barack Obama Trying To Reinstitute Slavery?

Dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb. That is one “dumb” for each paragraph of Jonah Goldberg’s Los Angeles Times column today. For the record, we did not expect it to be “good,” in the traditional sense — we didn’t expect to read it at all! But 18 paragraphs of unmitigated “dumb” has a strangely magnetic appeal during this lazy news season. So let’s check out Jonah’s column, in which he argues that Obama’s plan to offer educational aid as a reward for national service is somehow both (a) welfare and (b) slavery. Europe, MTV, “the JFK cult,” and Rolling Stone magazine also play bit parts in Jonah’s remarkable paean to the God of Shit.
