Tale prigoda, ki jo opisuje Paul Krugman, je dokaj blizu običajni politični blaznosti, ki vlada na južni strani Alp.
The question of the moment is whether the sane Republicans will, out of fear for their own political skins, defer to the insane Republicans and allow a government shutdown, or the much scarier possibility of debt default. Amid this drama, however, it’s worth remembering that even the sane ones are pretty much off the deep end, all too willing to buy into crazy conspiracy theories. Remember how Jack Welch accused Obama of cooking the jobs numbers?
And now, in a story I missed, Ari Fleischer briefly declared that Twitter must have special rules allowing Obama to use more than 140 characters. In fact, it turns out that Fleischer doesn’t know how to count — but think of the mindset that would even make him think of such a thing.
Politiki so enostavno zmešani. Bojim pa se, da so zgolj preslikava večinskega volilnega telesa. Zaradi česar me je še bolj strah.
