Why Liberals Think the Economy Is Terrible
Thomas Frank's bullbleep on “coolness” (discussed here) reminded me of why liberals think nobody can afford anything and have thought so for years or decades: It's because they insist on overpriced “cool” merchandise. If you insist on paying more than you can afford for pointlessly-upscale stuff, you will run out of cash.
The hayseeds and wonks didn't think the economy was going downhill until real stuff (e.g., gasoline) became expensive.
Query: What percentage of people who want to withdraw from Iraq think that the withdrawal will make gasoline cheaper?
