I paused for a moment this morning when I read Krugman describe Bush's tax cuts as "elitist." I don't think the name will stick, though it should, but it's a nice try. Greed and snobbery go hand in glove, but liberals are so superior by nature that it seems off for them to criticise others with such a brittle term. It shows the contradictions of liberalism that "class warfare," is seen as too strong, though Krugman, to his credit, uses it more than most. Still, he's trying to mix it up a little, and I could not help noticing the disconnect..
