A rose by any other name

There are at least two strange things about Paul Krugman's NYT column on the UK economic crisis and Gordon Brown's role in it.

First, he ignores that there is a 2nd opposition party, the Liberal Democrats.

But second, and more importantly, he thinks Gordon Brown should be getting credit for using activist fiscal and monetary policies to combat the crisis -- the same policies for which he has been bashing Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Tim Geithner since the crisis erupted.
