Well, me actually. The math, it is horrible.
However, I do have enough common sense to know that this is an incredibly ignorant analogy:
Oil does a lot of good things. It creates seals around engine parts, making your car more fuel efficient and powerful. It seals out air and prevents rust, and it also carries heat away from the engine. Anyone who doesn’t change the oil regularly and keep the proper level of oil is asking for a blown engine.
And that’s what Paul Krugman’s been talking about for four years now. The Bush administration, followed by the Obama administration, didn’t use enough stimulus oil and the engine of the economy has slowed to a crawl. (Hey pal, don’t you see that flashing red IDIOT LIGHT?)
What Susie Madrak of the hyper-leftist Crooks and Liars Blog doesn’t quite understand is that, to continue her analogy, Krugman and his minions are promoting the idea of filling the engine up with oil to the top of the oil filler neck.
It doesn’t take someone with a mechanical engineering degree to know what would happen if you were to do that.
But I guess that Susie isn’t even smart enough to figure that out.
