Krugman Book Lambasted in NYT Review!

David Kennedy shreds Paul Krugman, former Enron consultant, and his book into tiny pieces:
A fuller and more nuanced story might at least gesture toward the role that environmental and natural-resource issues have played in making red-state country out of the interior West, not to mention the unsettling effects of the “value issues” on voters well beyond Dixie. And as for national security — well, as Krugman sees things, it was not Democratic bungling in the Iranian hostage crisis or humiliation in Somalia or feeble responses to the first bombing attack on the World Trade Center or the assault on the U.S.S. Cole, but the runaway popularity of the Rambo films (I’m not making this up) that hoodwinked the public into believing that the party of Carter and Clinton (not to mention McGovern and Kucinich) might not be the most steadfast guardian of the Republic’s safety.

There's a lot of lathering and slithering among nanny-staters on the lefty fever-swamp vapor front. Take a glance at memeorandum and hear the moonbat squeaks amid the noisier shrieks of academicide victims.
