yes he did...Paul Krugman said it...

first though, one of my favorite lines from Krugman:

"what did Bobby Jindal choose to ridicule in this response to Obama last night? Volcano monitoring, of course."

Hey I am all for monitoring volcanic activity, I try to do it everyday...

but did Krugman actually call the GOP, "The party of Beavis and Butthead"?

[I"]And leaving aside the chutzpah of casting the failure of his own partyís governance as proof that government canít work, does he really think that the response to natural disasters like Katrina is best undertaken by uncoordinated private action? Hey, why bother having an army? Letís just rely on self-defense by armed citizens.

The intellectual incoherence is stunning. Basically, the political philosophy of the GOP right now seems to consist of snickering at stuff that they think sounds funny. The party of ideas has become the party of Beavis and Butthead."[/I]

yes he did.
