Radical Dithering

Earlier tonight I was listening to right-wing radio talker John Gibson, who alternated between abhorring the President's radical transformation of America into a socialist hellhole and for dithering ("even the ultra-liberal Paul Krugman says...") on the economy, without ever acknowledging let alone resolving the contradiction. Which is it, John? Radical transformation or dithering? Nor did Gibson bother to explain to his zombie audience that what Krugman was lamenting is Geithner's unwillingness to embrace nationalization of the zombie banks, an agenda I assume Gibson does not support.

It is impossible to overstate the moral stink of right-wing talk radio right now.

UPDATE 3/11: Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh spent some time trying to use the Krugman column against Obama as well.
