Good column by Paul Krugman on the "weaponized Keynesians." They are the hypocritical Republicans who say federal spending on bridge, road, school and other construction doesn't create jobs, but spending federal money on airplanes, bombs and weapon systems does.
BY THE WAY: The D-G today picked up a Washington Post story on Social Security (an opinion piece against Social Security masquerading as analysis) that's drawn a bunch of criticism, including from Krugman. Also jumping the Post, among others, Daily Howler.
