IOKIYAR Hits the Bigtime! 

We were all saddened when Paul Krugman lowered the worth-reading percentage of the New York Times by about 50% (Frank Rich being their other justification for killing trees) when he took off a few months ago "to write a book."

Well, apparently there really is a book. Rumor had it that it was to be a work on economics, but a hint appears that it might be Something Completely Different, as they say. A few snippets....and, oh yeah, please note that a certain Popular Item from the Liberal Lexicon has snuck into the home of the Gray Lady:

(via NYT)
Last but not least, in my bad novel the president, who portrays himself as the defender of good against evil, will preside over the widespread use of torture.

How did we find ourselves living in a bad novel? It was not ever thus. Hypocrites, cranks and scoundrels have always been with us, on both sides of the aisle. But 9/11 created an environment some liberals summarize with the acronym Iokiyar: it's O.K. if you're a Republican.

The public became unwilling to believe bad things about those who claim to be defending the nation against terrorism. And the hypocrites, cranks and scoundrels of the right, empowered by the public's credulity, have come out in unprecedented force.
Go read. Nothing that we (cough) here didn't already know, but a nice summary of facts for those teetering on the brink of tumbling off the Good Ship Bushiepop.
