On the Opinion Page: March 31, 2008
In which The Gay Recluse scores selected opinion pieces in The Times.
Paul Krugman/The Dilbert Strategy
The Short Version: Any “reform” of the financial markets proposed by the Bush administration is a joke.
In his words: “Oh, and the Bush administration actively blocked state governments when they tried to protect families against predatory lending.”
Score: B (Basic)
There’s nothing surprising about this column, but there’s nothing really wrong with it, either.
William Kristol/Biography Isn’t Enough
The Short Version: Behold the Maverick!
In his words: “As an elected official, [McCain has] never rested on his P.O.W. laurels, remarkable though they are.”
The Score: D (Dumb)
Total puff piece on The Maverick. Expect this column to be repeated at least fifty more times in as many weeks.
