Let's See: Bush is a Beady-Eyed Fascist and Chirac is Martin Sheen

Paul Krugman's column today comparing French politics to US politics is so awful that one hardly knows where to begin. You'll not be surprised to learn that French neofascists, in Krugman's rendering, closely resemble American conservative Republicans. Or that remarks by Rep. Tom DeLay (Neo-Fascist, TX) are twisted beyond recognition. Mr. Krugman's assertions and misrepresentations would be slanderous if anyone took him seriously. But he's become such a hack that he's lost whatever authority he once possessed.
