Paul Krugman is a Jackass

Krugman published his second whiny, Reagan-bashing Op-Ed piece in the Times today. He succeeds only in being petulant (which is his forté anyway).

"Hey, hey, wait, stop watching that funeral, listen to me, Reagan wasn't as good as people say! Wait, lemme tell you about all the great things that Bill Clinton did. Reagan was a sucker."

The man is being buried today. I'm disgusted.

Not that I'm advocating the cloying coverage provided by some of the cable news networks. For my money, C-SPAN has the right idea here, as per usual: broadcast footage of the various rites without any commentary.
