NYT's virulent house loon's piece today compares the situation in Wisconsin to the Bush administration's tactics in Iraq in 2003. Here's a small taste of the stupidity:
Maybe it’s Baghdad — specifically, Baghdad in 2003, when the Bush administration put Iraq under the rule of officials chosen for loyalty and political reliability rather than experience and competence.Confused? Don't be. Kruggie sees the right-wing writing on the wall in the Badger State and parallels to Bush's "Shock Doctrine" in Iraq, particularly the dots connected by author Naomi Klein:
From Chile in the 1970s onward, she suggested, right-wing ideologues have exploited crises to push through an agenda that has nothing to do with resolving those crises, and everything to do with imposing their vision of a harsher, more unequal, less democratic society.If you want to brighten your day further, peruse the moonbat commentary of the moonbat commenters that trail Kruggman's NYT moonbattery columns (they are more than worth reading).
