Earlier: Was looking forward to the Krugman-Morning Joe debate coming up (taped) tonight on Charlie Rose but now Paul ruins it with this blog post:
Now he's added a note on Joe's "accuracy deficit."Well, we’ll see how it comes out after editing, but I feel that I just had my Denver debate moment: I was tired, cranky, and unready for the blizzard of misleading factoids and diversionary stuff (In 1997 you said that the aging population was a big problem! When Social Security was founded life expectancy was only 62!) Oh, and I wasn’t prepared for Joe Scarborough’s slipperiness about what he actually advocates (he’s for more spending in the near term? Who knew?)
A useful reminder, I guess, not to take anything for granted. But I’d rather not learn my lessons with the camera rolling.
Update: By the way, considering how things eventually turned out, having a Denver moment isn’t the worst thing that can happen. Ask Mitt Romney.
