Paul Krugman Attacks Applebee's Salad Bar


At the beginning of last week, the commentariat was in raptures over the Serious, Courageous, Game-Changing Ryan plan. But now that the plan has been exposed as the cruel nonsense it is, what we’re hearing a lot about is the need for more civility in the discourse. President Obama did a bad thing by calling cruel nonsense cruel nonsense; he hurt Republican feelings, and how can we have a deal when the GOP is feeling insulted? What we need is personal outreach; let’s do lunch!
...
So what is there to talk about?
What's all this about lunch, now?

*** SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED ***




P.S. What's my point, other than that David Brooks is a very silly person who gets a paycheck for no good reason? I need your recommendations, that's what. I've heard that if one gets enough recommendations, one wins a free set of china, or some such.

Note: Do not recommend Dr. Dick's comment. Although it's a perfectly fine comment (perhaps even a genius comment if I had been the one to post it), Dr. Dick has more china than one can shake a stick at.

I reced you...despite my concerns about your maybe being a little to IN TO birds and squirrels. Admire them from afar, thunder. Some lines should not be crossed.

I cannot be unfair. Recommended both you & the incredibly evil DrDick.

Pay no attention to the woman in the rabbit costume. What do furries know about boundaries?

This blog attempts to respect fuzzy boundaries as best it can.

Further exposition on the 'smash and grab' I mentioned in my comment at Paul K.'s, via Southern Beale.

Every time a Bob Schaeffer or Tweety or George Stuffinenvelopes interviews a GOPer about this, we get the same old line about tax cuts stimulating the economy and no one ever says, "well, it hasn’t yet!"

Snuffleupagus is well-paid to not say it.

Alas, one does not get an op-ed column.

He promised me a soup tureen if I rec'ed him...
