paul krugman flutters furiously
"consider Greece, which had a government of national unity — an alliance between the center-right and the center-left, dedicated to following what the VSPs consider responsible policies. Think of it as Michael Bloomberg with retsina. Sounds great, doesn’t it? (Not to me, but I’m not a Serious Person).
The trouble is that the responsible policies aren’t — the austerity program that has defined being Serious in Europe is an abject (and predictable) failure. So voters take their anger out by voting against the insiders. And since all the respectable people are inside the political tent, backing and being identified with failed policies, that means a big vote for extremists right and left."
my lord voters running to extremes
both left and right ..the center may not hold..the men in jack boots just over the horizon...
even PK knows the center is wrong ....dead wrong
both in the euro zone and of course here too
and yet cling he will
to the "center left"
the softee head of the choiceless choice ballot box dog
cause paul loveth liberty beyond all understanding
and gosh darn
Lady liberty IS the vital center
ya ya he lacks all conviction
