Paul Krugman: Franc Thoughts on Bond Vigilantes
When the statistcal logic is flawed, the evidence is suspect and the comparison is analagous to apples and oranges - thusly lacking relevance; you end up with a pretty meaningless analysis and conclusions.

However, no such conclusion is possible because further study is requried
