Paul Krugman has a perfect column up today on the idiocracy who are trying to blame the current sorry financial state of the US and the world on average people. Which of course is pretty much what the elites will always do.
Krugman sums it up perfectly - and I've made a handy chart of his main points:
What is the cause of our current financial situation?
Done and done. Why is it that the big-mouth sabre-rattlers like Bush & Greenspan are total incompetents, while the quieter guys like Obama and Krugman are right - and get things done?
It really does seem, much of the time, like we live in an Idiocracy.
If you haven't seen that movie, go, see it. Now.
