The new Paul Krugman column is one sentence!

Rich people are making so much more money then regular folks, and it’s all Reagan’s and Bush’s fault!

Sure, he's basically repeating an argument he's made before, but it's an important one. Krugman's not a nut. He's a pragmatist that's rightly being driven nuts by the administration's economic policies. They have a fucking petro lobbyist with no scientific background editing (and taming down) a report on the environment.

I'm both a "rich people" and a "regular folks", Jeff. I'm not buying that class warfare shit. I only qualify as "rich people" because people like you say that I am. In actuality, I'm just another middle class tech worker.

When you want to classify computer programmers as "them" in the "us or them" argument, you need to think about what kind of lifestyle "regular folks" aspire too.

Jeff, the argument is bull. He used bogus stats (powerline already fisked him on this one). Not to mention, the dems always preach this line when the traditional economic indicators are looking good..

Krugman is a joke. You need to be a partisan hack to read him, and then read the critiques of his 'work', and still believe he has credibility...
