yes we can

October 14, 2008

US Economist Paul Krugman won the Nobel Economists Prize on Monday.

He’s a regular New York Times columnist who openly criticises Bush’s free market policies. He condemns the Bush-administration’s recent bailout plan as “financial Russian roulette“, but supports the Brown bailout scheme.

I read an article about him, and this really tickled my fancy:

In a recent column he stated flatly that “the Obama campaign is wrong to suggest that a McCain-Palin administration would just be a continuation of Bush-Cheney. If the way John McCain and Sarah Palin are campaigning is any indication, it would be much, much worse.”

It seems lately that the McCain-Palin team has attracted more press, what with Palin’s daughter drama and McCain’s seemingly clever strategy getting a woman on his team to win the votes of hockey moms who probably have had their daughters knocked up too. But more press doesn’t necessarily equal good press.

After watching the second Presidential Debate, I’m tempted to say “Yes, we can.”

After all, Michelle dresses much better than Cindy. Elegant, but not as pretentious.
