Paul Krugman on Colbert

So Paul Krugman found himself on Colbert last night, where he discombobulatedly tried to make the same point he's been failing to make very well in his NYT columns for the past few months: that the Stimulus package was enough to help, but just not enough to cure the economy's woes.

Krugman backs up the Obama administrations ludicrous claim that the stimulus has aided in making things worse, but more slowly, and begins discussion of Stimulus #2. If Colbert wasn't so good at running an interview, this guy would have driven this train right off a cliff.

Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Enjoy the video if you can. I'll be cleaning the vomit off my keyboard.
