On the Opinion Page: April 28, 2008

28Apr08

In which The Gay Recluse scores selected opinions in The Times.

Paul Krugman/Bush Made Permanent

The Short Version: The Maverick is a Loser!

In his words: “Mr. McCain proposes making almost all of the Bush tax cuts, which are currently scheduled to expire at the end of 2010, permanent.”

Score: B- (Basic)
We already know that the Maverick is not exactly the straight talker he purports to be, so this column is hardly a revelation.

William Kristol/Hillary Gets No Respect 

The Short Version: Hillary’s one tough cookie!

In his words: “Over to you, anguished liberals. ”

The Score: F (Funny)
Kristol is trying to deflect attention away from the fact that McCain is the sorriest candidate ever by focusing on the Obama/Clinton dust storm, as if that makes McCain any less sorry. Because Obama makes McCain look even sorrier than Clinton does, Kristol pretends to admire Clinton, which of course is quite funny! “But Hillary may well be the better candidate.” (You can practically hear the knives being sharpened in the background.)
