SULLIVAN CORRECTS HIMSELF....This is peculiar. Andrew Sullivan has published a correction of his criticism of Paul Krugman yesterday, but here's what it says:

In tackling Krugman, I committed an error of hyperbole. I wrote that he had said that the "entire reason" for the deficit was tax cuts. He said the "main reason." He did, however, omit any reference to the vast increase in discretionary domestic spending under Bush.

Good for Sully for correcting himself (honest!), but what's the point of doing it if he continues to screw up what Krugman said? In fact, Krugman specifically mentioned increases in defense and homeland security spending, which are the bulk of the discretionary increases we've seen from Bush.

Weird.
