Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Best Headline of the Year

From Krugman's Op Ed this morning.

My nomination for headline of the year comes from the newspaper Roll Call, on July 18: McConnell Blasts Deficit Spending, Urges Extension of Tax Cuts.”

This puts him at just about this level.  Except the guy who came in 3rd in the Myrtle Turtle  look-alike contest is operating on hostility due to simple greed, while the moron in the van has a rather different variety of reptile brain.

You can't make up shit that is as ridiculous, stupid, and just plain awful as the reality of what the Republican liars, brigands and thieves are doing to America.

PK concludes:  "Banana republic, here we come."

God, we're screwed.
