Krugman's off his meds
"Meanwhile, the crudity of the administration's recent propaganda efforts, from dressing the president up in a flight suit to orchestrating the ludicrously glamorized TV movie about Mr. Bush on 9/11, have set even supporters' teeth on edge."
No, Pablo, it's this nonsense from you that sets my teeth on edge.
"Maybe it was the pressure of other commitments that kept Mr. Bush from visiting New York yesterday; but one suspects that his aides no longer think of the Big Apple as a politically safe place to visit."
Perhaps he missed it, but Mayor Bloomberg specifically requested that VP Cheney not attend because the security procedures would interfere with the families of the victims. Obviously security would not be any easier with the President there.
"Four months ago it seemed that the 2004 campaign would be all slow-mo films of Mr. Bush in his flight suit. But at this point, it's likely to be pictures of Howard Dean or Wesley Clark that morph into Saddam Hussein."
I don't get the fascination with Clark among the left; surely he is not likely to win in the primaries entering at this late date. And I'm sure Krugman is horrified at the prospect of Howard Dean morphing into Saddam. Tough.
