Fancy Senator-Presumptive, Fancy House

Calling on Democrats, even as they massively expand government, to make sure it's FDR-style good government, Paul Krugman frowns:
And I have to say that Democrats are off to a bad start on that front. The attempted coronation of Caroline Kennedy as senator plays right into 40 years of conservative propaganda denouncing “liberal elites.” And surely I wasn’t the only person who winced at reports about the luxurious beach house the Obamas have rented, not because there’s anything wrong with the first family-elect having a nice vacation, but because symbolism matters, and these weren’t the images we should be seeing when millions of Americans are terrified about their finances.

Golberg, son of Lucianne, a good Nixon operative, says we should send her to the Court of St. James as Ambassador!!!

You probably know that I am a Palinista and I sent via courier your "New Nixon, New Reagan" analysis to the Governor.

I concur with you wholeheartedly, except for the point that Connolly and or Bush would have beat Carter, but as to what she needs to do, it is prescient.

BTW, most of my hard core readers also concur with you, as does O'Sullivan and even Coulter...her year is '16.

God Bless you Mr. regards.

Thanks, Carlos, and Merry Christmas to you. I didn't know that about Lucianne and Jonah!

Ann Coulter's coming to the Library on Feb. 5, BTW.
