Laffer conjures Pedestriangate!

THURSDAY, MAY 14, 2020

His visit to dead person's curve:
President Trump has coined a new term: Obamagate.

Far right on cue, supernal economist Arthur Laffer has arrived with Pedestriangate.

Pedestriangate is Laffer' way of explaining how the coronavirus death count ever got so absurdly high. Yesterday, Erin Banco delivered the dope at the Daily Beast:
BANCO AND SUEBSAENG (5/13/20): “My view is the president is totally correct that we need to have medical transparency,” said Art Laffer, a longtime conservative economist who has counseled Trump and other key administration officials on coronavirus response and how to “open” the economy amid the pandemic. “When you attribute a death to the coronavirus today, what that means is that the guy had the coronavirus and died. It doesn’t matter if he got hit by a car and died, and he would still be categorized as a coronavirus death... You need the whole transcribed medical records on a disk so people can sit there, maybe without names, and look for causes and correlations.”
In fairness, Laffer may have conjured an absurd example to make a larger point. On the other hand, with so many people now sheltered in place, it's hard to get hit by a car!

Gentlepersons, start your napkins! Among us self-impressed rational animals, the foolishness never ends!

  1. Well, actually, it seems quite possible that various institutions may find it convenient to attribute unrelated deaths to coronavirus.

    No scrutiny, no troubles for the doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes. No questions asked. It would've surprised me if it hasn't happened.

    But sure, dear Bob, saying "hit by a car" completely annihilates that whole "rational animal" quip. Sure, sure, dear Bob. Sure.

    You know, dear Bob, this shtick of yours a-la A Man Without A Country is getting really tiresome.

    2. I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has began to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter. I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Great! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Great for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again..

  5. You gotta love America. When other countries allegedly undercount deaths it's because they're scheming and corrupt. When we undercount deaths we have a perfectly rational explanation.

    Why are the rest of us responsible for Trump and Laffer's nonsense?
