Paul Krugman: Disappointment: Better than Disaster

James Taranto observes that Paul Krugman has finally walked towards the light, albeit inadvertently.

Former Enron adviser Paul Krugman, writing from Tokyo, reflects on the upcoming elections and comes to this cheery conclusion: "Americans, understandably, are disappointed over, frustrated with and angry about the state of the economy; but disappointment is better than disaster."

"Disappointment is better than disaster." It's a bit long for a bumper sticker, but otherwise not a bad election slogan: honest, pointed, yet not promising too much.

Just one question: Why is Krugman writing slogans for the Republicans?
