6. You don't need to know economics ...
... to see how full of shit Luskin is.

Krugman probably has THIRTY to FIFTY columns in which he meticulously demonstrates the fraud embedded in the Bush plans, going all the way back to the campaign. As Bob Somerby ( has pointed out, Krugman was the only pundit who refused to pretend that Bush's obvious lies were just "differences of opinion."

So, Luskin's "criticism," as you posted it here, is that Krugman didn't pack a book's worth of econometrics into an 800-word column written for a general audience.
