Heinlein's advice

Back in the 2008 primary season I wrote a short post featuring sci-fi author Robert Heinlein's advice on how to vote without needing to do extensive research on a candidate's political positions, history, etc. If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you […]

Clinton, Rubio and the media

For his first few years at The New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman was my punching bag. His dishonest, hack columns were perfect material for easy rabbit punches that had a devastating effect. My takedowns of his dishonest columns received widespread notice in a variety of national publications and in conservative Washington circles. Then the Times […]

Today's liberal lines

The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto has uncovered these hypocrisies on the part of  New York Times columnist Paul Krugman before, but today's is especially amusing. The tune never changes. Krugman will deny the obvious in an effort to forward the ball for his team. I fully expect in the coming days to hear my House […]

You’re gonna need a bigger credit card

This video of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman getting his hat handed to him over his position that the government (ours and all the others) can spend its way to prosperity. That’s gotta hurt The key critique starts at about 35:00 in. They get going at it again at 1:06. What I wanted to […]

The Manhattan Left

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman this morning, on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that left nearly 3,000 dead. Paul Krugman is an odious, disgusting, cowardly tool. The world would be a better place were he not in it.

Devaluing his Nobel daily

Words cannot express my befuddlement that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman would write this: No word yet on whether Krugman has torched his own house. UPDATE! It appears that this wasn’t the real Paul Krugman, but an elaborate fake. So if you see me quoted as saying something really stupid or outrageous, and it […]

Nobel Laureate becomes bumper sticker

I’m sure you’re familiar with the old bumper sticker: “I can’t be overdrawn, I still have checks left.” Well, that sort of “logic” now passes for serious economic analysis for The New York Times’ Paul Krugman. The nation is not, in fact, “broke.” The federal government is having no trouble raising money, and the price […]

Scare tactics

As Republicans make rather feeble attempts to get the government’s huge budget problems under control (with zero help from Democrats), the left is trotting out the same tried and true memes the children, the poor, the elderly will be hardest hit by the changes. Over at Mother Jones, (demonstrating that I’m far more well-read than […]

On Wisconsin

I was doing some entertaining over the long holiday weekend, so I never got a chance to do a blow-by-blow on the protests in Wisconsin. Here’s a quick rundown: First, an anecdote. Back in 1989, the National Education Association held its national convention during the summer in Washington, D.C. My father, a (comparatively) small-time teacher’s […]

This is rich

A reader forwarded me the link to this Village Voice article defending New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. I encourage you to check it out. It’s hilarious in how it elides all the substantive arguments against Krugman’s knee-jerk, fact-free attempt to blame the Tucson shooting on the political right. The author, Roy Edroso, quotes the […]
