Shorter Paul Krugman

Let’s hope that this latest campaign of garbage and lies – initially financed by a Texas Republican close to Karl Rove, and running an ad featuring an “independent” veteran who turns out to have served on a Bush campaign committee – leads to a backlash against Mr. Bush. If it doesn’t, here’s the message we’ll be sending to Americans who serve their country: If you tell the truth, your courage and sacrifice count for nothing.

Over to you, Mr. Brooks.
