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.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
