Official GOP response to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression
Marsh mice. Losers! FDR’s fault. Mag lev. Heh. Heh heh. Also, Katrina.
Update: Later that day, the ether kicked in.
Heh, indeed.Posted by on 02/25 at 11:31 AM
Thank God we got that amazing ROI out of the Iraq war or we’d be in really deep kimchi.Posted by on 02/25 at 11:33 AM

Krugman beat you on this point:
The party of ideas has become the party of Beavis and Butthead.Posted by on 02/25 at 01:34 PM
Oh, right, like Krugman owns the boxed set. I was on the GOP Beavis and Butthead beat four and a half years ago, man (ninth paragraph down). Besides, Krugman’s totally a sellout.Posted by on 02/25 at 01:38 PM
Krugman gets points for brevity, which your ancient post, alas, does not. (However, today’s post does, so call it a draw.)Posted by on 02/25 at 01:43 PM
Americans can eat anything. In Louisiana, anyway.Posted by Hattie on 02/25 at 01:45 PM

I’ve heard it said that if you can kill it, you can fry it, and if you can fry it, you can eat it.Posted by John Protevi on 02/25 at 04:07 PM
Your diction is off: in the GOP response the term is magnetic levitation, which may as well be feminist homeopathy, not mag lev, which sounds important and cool.Posted by on 02/25 at 04:24 PM
Yeah, and how do we Really know Obama was born in America and is Truly eligible to be president, huh? Do YOU personally have a copy of his birth certificate with the raised seal and all that?Posted by Bulworth on 02/25 at 04:31 PM
The momentum has definitely shifted—the Republicans party is like a rolling manhole cover.Posted by on 02/25 at 04:53 PM

Obama was raised by seals? or by magnetic levitation? or by levitating seals? I need to know for my forthcoming book.Posted by Mr. Kurtz on 02/25 at 05:22 PM

Mag lev. Heh heh heh.* What else do I have to say?
*alternative second line for better wrongnessness, but worser brevityness:
New Orleans blown away. What else do I have to say?Posted by on 02/25 at 06:57 PM
probably Bobby Seals but not levitating seals.
capcha “hell”Posted by on 02/25 at 08:53 PM
There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than Newt Gingrich in the depths of an ether binge.
Captcha: serious. As in, you can’t be.Posted by Lance on 02/25 at 10:06 PM
Americans can do anything! More to the point, Republicans will do anything.
It seems perfectly reasonable to call people who Twitter twits.Posted by David J Swift on 02/26 at 12:05 AM
Krugman beat you on this point
Now that I’ve read Krugman’s column, I see that he posted it at 11:08 am yesterday—whereas my post went up 58 minutes earlier, at 10:10 Eastern, which of course registers as 11:10 on this strangely Atlantic-Time-Zone-centric blog. So there.Posted by on 02/26 at 02:20 PM
And so I finally fixed the time-stamp problem. Turns out it was a strange byway off the main engine room.Posted by on 02/26 at 02:28 PM
I think you might like the financial episode of my most recent supernicholas comic. In case you can’t tell, bobby jindal destroyed nick’s unemployment check with his butt-laser. (americans can do ANYTHING!)Posted by rachel Harris on 02/27 at 11:26 AM

Turns out it was a strange byway off the main engine room.
Would that be the one in this ship, the USS Condoleezza Rise? Or perhaps it is found only in the GOP Hindenburg, a first class vessel in its own right, as any vessel containing the bowels of these alien lizard lords?Posted by on 02/27 at 10:25 PM
"America can do anything”
Try striking a match on jelly.
