The Corner

Keep Reading, She Says

An e-mail response to the earlier Krugman post:

Sorry, I rarely disagree with the cornerites and have never agreed with

Krugman, but this time, if you ignore the hyperventilating I think he’s got

a point. Bush is running on his record as strong on terror. Well, he’s got

a justice department that competes with homeland security on who can scare

us better yet there have been no successful prosecutions, no raids such as

happen in Europe every couple of months and they’re totally bogged down on

this enemy combatant thing — they don’t justify it succinctly — and

they’re getting a well-deserved black eye as a result.

I think Krugman makes factual arguments this time and deserves to have those

arguments dealt with on that basis instead of lowering to his level of ad

hominem attacks.
