Kooky Krugman: Featured in today's column by The New York Times' Paul Krugman:
1. Bush lied
2. Bush lied
3. Bush is politicizing Sept. 11

And some stunts no longer seem feasible. Maybe it was the pressure of other commitments that kept Mr. Bush from visiting New York yesterday; but one suspects that his aides no longer think of the Big Apple as a politically safe place to visit.
Of course, following the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" method of argument, had Bush gone to New York, Krugman had prepared the following alternative paragraph:
Bush's audacity is unabated two years after the terrible tragedy. Other pressing committments couldn't keep the publicity-seeking Bush from attending ceremonies at Ground Zero.
Same ol', same ol'.
