Looks Like Brad DeLong is Stealing Sisyphus's Shtick...

Brad DeLong is giving Andrew Sullivan his own Claude Rains award. But of course, this is Andrew Sullivan who may eventually win the lifetime "I'm shocked, shocked to discover that gambling is going on in here!" achievement award. Yep, Andy has learned that once again, Bush has lied -- this time to the world about his budget!

The most interesting thing, of course, is that Paul Krugman--Sullivan's bete noire--has been telling him for 3 1/2 years now that there is "gambling going on in here"--that George W. Bush is either a bald-faced liar or frighteningly unaware of the most basic of facts about what the government is doing.

Isn't it time for Andrew Sullivan to write Paul Krugman a formal apology? It is the mannerly thing to do if you suddenly realize that you have been wrong and they have been right all along.

The day that Sullivan admits that the shrill, partisan, unhinged Krugman was right about anything is the day I sprout wings and sing the heavenly chorus.
