"Te Atrocity" --Essential Reynolds: Krugman's just the canary in the coal mine

EVERYBODY'S ANGRY, to judge from my email, about Paul Krugman's typo-burdened 9/11 screed. Don't be.
You'll see more and worse from Krugman and his ilk as the left nationally undergoes the kind of crackup it's already experiencing in Wisconsin. They thought Barack Obama was going to bring back the glory days of liberal hegemony in politics, but it turned out he was their Ghost Dance, their Bear Shirt, a mystically believed-in totem that lacked the power to reverse their onrushing decline, no matter what the shamans claimed.

Read all, especially the letter from the "anonymous" academic.

So what if Krudman made a typo? Everybody makes typos from time to time. Sometimes a typo is just a typo. Except when it's not a typo.

Cargo cult politics...Obama was the lefties' hope, to come down from the sky and make everything okay. Kruugman was his prophet.

"...and pay their mortgages."
From what can be seen in America, they're not paying their mortgages.
