I want some of this!

Enron advisor Paul Krugman has this to say about English health care:

In Britain, the government itself runs the hospitals and employs the doctors. We’ve all heard scare stories about how that works in practice; these stories are false.

Reality says this:

British man dies of dehydration in hospital.

A man of 22 died in agony of dehydration after three days in a leading teaching hospital.

Kane Gorny was so desperate for a drink that he rang police to beg for their help.

They arrived on the ward only to be told by doctors that everything was under control.

The next day his mother Rita Cronin found him delirious and he died within hours.

She said nurses had failed to give him vital drugs which controlled fluid levels in his body. ‘He was totally dependent on the nurses to help him and they totally betrayed him.’

Of course, Krugman himself has admitted that he lives in two alternative universes, so this may not be contradictory in his eyes. Apparently, nothing is.

Bush derangement syndrome continues

Former Enron advisor and current New York Times columnist Paul Krugman  calls for criminal investigations into Bush administration’s actions over the past eight years.  It is the most popular emailed article on the paper’s website and, assuming that these emails are generated by the Time’s typical reader, the left is with Krugman. Why would anyone want to tie up the country for another four years rehashing hysterical theories? Well, you start with the general low IQ of your average leftist, of course, but Krugman at least has the brains of a turnip and surely must know better. My guess is that he, and any fellow sentient beings who follow his logic, know that the Obama administration is doomed and along with it, all the economic nostrums championed by professor Krugman. So what to do? How to avoid being asked to explain this failure? Ratchet up the BDS sufferers, of course, and distract them. From now and continuing forever, it will be all Bush, all the time. Or so he must hope.
