Shaolin economics

Paul Krugman goes all Jet Li on Bushonomics, swatting away every stupid presidential move without even breaking a sweat: "To avert the danger of future cuts in benefits, Mr. Bush wants us to commit now to, um, future cuts in benefits." "Mr. Bush likes to play dress-up, but his Robin Hood costume just doesn't fit." Read it; there's serious math in the middle of the appropriate witty disdain.

Update: Josh Marshall noted the same hypocrisy, though he went easy on the guy: "The important point is that for President Bush there’s only one solution—big middle class benefit cuts. [...] For most folks, that’s the problem. For President Bush, it’s the solution."
