Bungling Rulers and Pathetic Opposition, oh my.

Says Krugman in this NYT article, "We are ruled by bunglers .... Democratic electoral victories should be a sure thing. But they aren't. Why?"

Unfortunately, other than giving examples to support the "bunglers" assertion, and citing polls to support the "Democratic victories should be sure" assertion, he gets no more specific in answering the "Why?" question than to say: the Democrats' disunity, plus the media's focus on horse-race stories rather than policy issues, makes the public think Democrats are ineffective. So, therefore, he says, the Democrats should get more unified.

Anyway, the overall gist of his editorial is exactly what Pawlr said in a comment regarding one of the Alito-related postings below. It's good that Krugman is reading Pawlr's points and helping broadcast them on the NYT Op-Ed page (though that page tends to be as much a preaching-to-the-choir location as our own blog here).

If any of you readers know some enthusaistic conservatives or even radical right-wingers who you think would enjoy debating with us here, please invite them.

I've invited a few people to chat with us - my brother who's a smart guy working for a lawfirm in D.C. is one of them.

It's like that scene from "The Warriors": "CON- SER- VA- TIVES!! CON- SER- VAAAAH- TIIIIIIVES!!"
