On the Opinion Page: April 25, 2008

25Apr08

In which The Gay Recluse scores selection opinion pieces in The Times.

Paul Krugman/Self-Inflicted Confusion

The Short Version: Friends! I told you Hillary was the best, and because you ignored me and got wrapped up in the Obullshit message of “change,” you shall now suffer accordingly.

In his words: “The attacks from the Clinton campaign have been badminton compared with the hardball Republicans will play this fall.”

Score: D+ (Disingenuous)
We agree with Krugman that whatever Clinton has thrown at Obama will be badminton in comparison to what The Maverick has in store for him. In fact, we think Obama will be better prepared to handle it, and thus will eventually owe Clinton a gesture of gratitude for raking him over the coals now, when it’s less important. That said, we completely disagree with Krugman’s assessment of Clinton’s victory in Pennsylvania being a result of white/working-class confidence with her wonkish grasp of health care. (In fact: LOL!) Why not just admit that Obama is a candidate of the city, which makes large, rural swaths of our country uncomfortable, even if they’re not racist (which many of them are.)
