Privatization Fetish

Just in case you missed it, Paul Krugman hit another one out of the park. Man ! I wish I could write like this:

”Thus, the administration has abandoned the principle of a professional, nonpolitical civil service, stuffing agencies from FEMA to the Justice Department with unqualified cronies. “

Let’s not forget the FAA. I’m lucky if I can come up with one memorable point per day. Krugman gets a half dozen per column.

”You might think that national security would take precedence over the fetish for privatization — but remember, President Bush tried to keep airport security in private hands, even after 9/11.“

Read the whole thing.
