Has Kaus Gone Krazy?

Now I love kausfiles and I share Kaus's hate of TimesSelect, but I think the former's obsession with the latter has entered an unhealthy stage, as evidenced by his latest post (as of 7:45am 9/28/05 - no permalink available!) which begins with this odd assertion:
Let the Victims Speak, Part II: kf reader S.D. complains that TimeSelect--and with it Web access to columnists such as Paul Krugman--is unavailable to those too poor to have credit cards.
And ends with this bizarre wrap-up:
News of the NYT policy comes at a time when Hurricane Katrina has raised profound issues of race, class, and gender.
Either Mickey has gone over the deep end or he has attained new heights of subtlety in the use of irony in blogging. Let's hope the latter.

Update: Clark Stooksbury noticed the same thing, but a few posts and a day earlier. I personally didn't think these Kaus were particularly off, but apparently Clark has a more sensitive "whack"-meter than I.

I read this as irony. It's got to be, right?

He can be rather dry - but usually he throws in more of a hint to keep people like me from taking him seriously. You're probably right...
