WaPo Really Phoning It In Before Thanksgiving

first realization: dana milbank is a guy. second realization: dana milbank is a tom turkey.The Washington Post did two interesting things today: Columnist Ruth Marcus ripped Paul Krugman a new one, and a turkey was interviewed. We will focus on the latter.
