Was Barack Obama going to get hammered by the economy no matter what he did? Paul Krugman concedes that it’s possible. It certainly doesn’t help that many Americans are too stupid to understand the stimulus package. But don’t worry, now that unions are free to flood the airwaves with informative ads, things will be much clearer. Or, uh, not. We’re pretty much screwed. All of us, not just the gays. I hope the last season of “Lost” is good, because I can’t think of anything else to look forward to.
