MICKEY KAUS: “I’m not saying theocratic incompetents from the ‘700 Club’ aren’t fanning out through the government. Maybe they are. I’m saying Paul Krugman is not convincing on this issue. He doesn’t even seem to be trying to be convincing. Why should he try? There’s always been a market for anti-hick editorializing in the New York Times, especially anti-Southern-hick editorializing.” Well, Krugman’s an economist. Supply and demand!
