Paul Krugman Obliterates the Myth that Low Business Taxes Create Jobs

If Carly Fiorina has the answers for the economy, then we are all in big trouble. Fiorina was such a failure at HP that her own board of directors, including her mentor at the company, repudiated her leadership, and showed her the door. It is impossible for Fiorina to intelligently discuss the economy, because her professional history tells us that she doesn’t know anything about it.

Open thread for night owls: Rep. Todd Akin mourns inability to impeach Obama over nothing

You don't get many rants on DKos but this one is a doozy! It's great. It's the sort of rant I'd like to be able to write but my brains fry five lines into. :)

"Again, what is remarkable is that there just seems to be no lower bound on how outlandish the Republican Party can become, or how gullible, or how conspiracy-addled. People grumbling about impeaching the president for purely partisan reasons is the new normal. People ranting about "communists" in Congress is normal. Birtherism is now normal. The whole damn party has devolved into the sort of thing that used to be passed out in pamphlets written by crazy people in front of airports, back when we Americans were still allowed in airports, but we're all supposed to go on our merry little way pretending that none of it is all that exceptional. What's next, tattoos of Reagan punching hippies? Mass not-gay marriages? Can we please at least start drug testing these people before letting them write laws for us?"
