James Taranto busts Paul Krugman for being for the Senate filibuster before he was against it.
From yesterday’s WSJ Best of the Web Today:
“The big step by extremists will be an attempt to eliminate the filibuster.”–former Enron adviser Paul Krugman, New York Times, March 29, 2005
“We need to take on the way the Senate works. The filibuster, and the need for 60 votes to end debate, aren’t in the Constitution. . . . So it’s time to revise the rules.”–former Enron adviser Krugman, New York Times, Dec. 18, 2009
Paul Krugman, extremist.
