DOES ANYONE EDIT THE EDITORIAL PAGE?:

From today's NY Times e-mail:

TODAY'S EDITORIALS
What Does Alan Greenspan Want?
Although the the Fed chairman said on Wednesday that he
supports private accounts in Social Security, he also said
so much more that it could hardly be read as approval.

OP-ED COLUMNIST
Three-Card Maestro
By PAUL KRUGMAN
Alan Greenspan has betrayed the trust placed in Fed
chairmen and deserves to be treated as just another
partisan hack.

I half expect Paul to kidnap Andrea and hold her in some warehouse near Princeton until Alan comes to his senses....

Partisan hack? Look in the mirror.

It's disgusting of the NYT to exploit the mentally ill (Krugman, Dowd, Rich) for cheap sport like that. Their editorial page is the print version of the "Mad Prophet" show from Network.

To answer your question; yes, and they are risibly incompetent. But it's not just the editors. It's a fundamental job qualification for employment at "Pinch's Organ."

Krugman calling someone else a partisan hack may be the funnies thing ever to appear in the NYT. The sad thing is - if I'm thinking of the same Hrugman - he used to be quite a good international trade economist. What happened, man?
