Morning Reading

Bob Herbert: "The White House seems to have slipped the bonds of simple denial and escaped into the disturbing realm of utter delusion." If we gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to three people who did such a bad job in Iraq, what do we give to those who actually DID their jobs? [NYT]

Paul Krugman: We can learn a lot from other countries that have gone the privatization route. This really just isn't a good idea. Yeah, we need some reform, but the system is solvent until 2052. If it isn't broke, don't fix it! [NYT]

Frank Rich: "What is this about? How can those in this country's overwhelming religious majority maintain that they are victims in a fiery battle with forces of darkness? It is certainly not about actual victimization." [NYT]

The American Express Green-Zone? MoDo the Dragon Lady explains. [NYT]
