It must suck to be Paul Krugman. I'm sure he'd rather not be the guy who figured out our economy is actually in a depression. Regarding the debate about whether Washington should cut spending or invest in job creation, he had this ray of sunshine:

Can't you just hear the ominous soap opera music before the cut to a commercial?
