Vodkapundit strikes again,
this time at Paul Krugman’s Worse Than Fiction little scenarios. Krugman forgets to mention the curious incidents of the campaign advisor stuffing secret documents into his shorts and socks at the National Archives, or, for that matter, the economist at The University shilling for Enron on Fortune Magazine, but that’s what Vodkapundit’s commenters are for. Vodkapundit, however, is masterful:
Let’s not stop there. Let’s include a married governor, of a state from where you could watch the Twin Towers burn and fall, who put his gay lover in charge of state-level homeland security, in an office conveniently close to the governor’s mansion. Is that far enough? No? Then how about gay activists who hate the President, even though he ended a regime that used to topple stone walls onto gay men?
. . .
Why not put in another feminist. Only this one is a woman – who marries for power. And then uses her married name to carpetbag her way into the US Senate. Too bad to be true? Well, sure. But this is, after all, a bad novel.
Some economists get fisked in a big way.
