Krugman Invades the Moronic DC Happy Talk Bubble

If you're looking for a show that combines all the worst elements of DC groupthink in one place, morning Joe is the show for you. Brethless talk about deficits and serious discussions over the urgency of cutting social security and medicare is discussed by the Mark Halprins and Harold Fords of the world. Earlier this morning their world was invaded by Paul Krugman, and some predictable hilarity ensued.

I wish he had been more aggressive in attacking the general premise of Medicare cuts and emphasized that it is a health care spending problem not a medicare problem, but I can see why he would take a less combative approach on their show. Still, it was fun to watch him repeatedly point out that their biggest obsession (that the deficit is going to kill us all) is basically bullshit.
