Paul Krugman brings shame to the term “Economist”
John Lott’s take down of Paul Krugman, also known to this site as Paul Rugrat, is a great read and is totally on-target.
When I started this blog, my intent was to largely parody the idiotic columns written by the usual lefties: Paul Rugrat, Dana Milkbag, Moron Dowd, Robert Reich III, Charles Blows, et al.
I found the task far more difficult than imagined as their columns were already (if unintentionally) self-parodying to begin with. It was like reading The Onion, only funnier and paradoxically, also more sad. And none more so than Krugman, whose columns flirt with the absolute limits of human irrationality and denial.
“Economist,” thanks to Rugrat and his ilk, is now right up there with “politician” and “climate scientist” as far as earned respect, accuracy, and truthfulness are concerned.
