IOKIYAR means a "Higher Morality": Four years of a bad novel

The New York Times > Opinion > Krugman: Worse Than Fiction

It's good to have Paul back. Here he delivers cogent summary of four years of the Bush regime. He's right, one couldn't write a novel this simplistically bad. Maybe a bad comic book is a better analogy.

I like the acronym: "Iokiyar: it's O.K. if you're a Republican." How does one pronounce that? Eye-OKay-i-yar? It captures the O'Reilly perspective quite well. If one is part of the Party, then the conventional rules of morality do not apply.

Hmm. A Member of the Party means one is above mere everyday plebian morality? Where have I heard that one before?
