Krugman’s blog, 10/22/16mgpaquin

There was one post yesterday, “Debt, Diversion, Distraction:” There was a time, not long ago, when deficit scolds were actively dangerous — when their huffing and puffing came quite close to stampeding Washington into really bad policies like raising the Medicare age (which wouldn’t even have saved money) and short-term fiscal austerity. At this point […](image)

Mr. Blow has a question in “Clinton’s Question of Illegitimacy:”  Why is the election “rigged” at the very moment that a woman is on the verge of victory?  Oh, Charles — if you thought the racism of the last 8 years has been fun, just WAIT until you see the sexism to follow.  In “It’s […](image)

In “Don’t Take Donald Trump to Dinner” Ms. Collins says that like so much else, he found a way to ruin a 70-year-old tradition where candidates show up for inoffensive fun.  Here she is: The evidence continues to mount: There is nothing in the world that Donald Trump can’t make worse. Our latest example is the […](image)

In “Donald Trump vs. American Democracy” Mr. Blow says Trump is desperate for a reason to explain why he’s losing.  Bobo has decided to tell us all about “How to Repair Moral Capital.”  He says that the task ahead is globalism with solidarity.  Whatever that means.  As a delightful lagniappe, in true “Both Siderism” he actually […](image)

In “The Debate in One Scary Answer” Ms. Collins says Donald Trump wouldn’t say if he’d accept the results of the election. He also cried foul when he didn’t win an Emmy for “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Here she is: O.K., Donald Trump won’t promise to accept the results of the election. That’s truly … good grief.

In “WikiHillary for President” The Moustache of Wisdom says hackers exposed Clinton as a smart politician with a vision and a pragmatic approach to getting things done.  Mr. Bruni, in “Trump in a Bikini,” says he relentlessly scrutinizes others. Let’s conduct various examinations of him.  Here’s TMOW: Thank God for WikiLeaks. I confess, I was starting […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “Distrust of Data:” Like Claudia Sahm, I was struck by polling results indicating that around half of Trump supporters completely distrust official data — although maybe a bit less surprised, since I’ve been living in that world for years. In particular, the failure of high inflation to materialize led quite […](image)

I could have sworn something important might be happening in this country in 21 days, but Bobo can’t be bothered to take notice.  Today he’s all about “The Power of a Dinner Table” and tells  us that each Thursday, a couple opens their home and offers teenagers a warmth missing from their lives.  Here he is: […](image)

In “Donald Trump, the Worst of America” Mr. Blow says he is the logical extension of misogyny, racism, privilege and anti-intellectualism.  Mr. Bruni, in “For Donald Trump, Lessons in Grace,” says the patriotic concession speeches of prior presidential candidates show an alternative to his corrosive conspiracies.  Prof. Krugman has a question in “Their Dark Fantasies:”  Why do […](image)

Bobo’s decided to pretend that The Short Fingered Vulgarian doesn’t exist.  Today he’s graced us with a thing called “The Beauty of Big Books,” in which he informs us that a law professor takes a swing at the mother of all questions.  In the comments “syfredrick” from Providence, RI had this to say:  “Another book report […](image)
