It seems Paul has lost control of himself in this rant. Do I detect a few flecks of spittle on his chin?

Links and updates to follow downthread.

...and supported by the usual group of right-wing billionaires.

There are right-wing billionaires in this country??? It would be nice if Mr. Krugman dropped a few names.

And I'm sure none of the leftist anti-war, anti-Bush demonstrations are funded by left-wing billionaires, such as George Soros.

The most notable example was the “spontaneous” riot back in 2000 — actually orchestrated by G.O.P. strategists — that shut down the presidential vote recount in Florida’s Miami-Dade County.

I didn't think that was a "spontaneous riot" when it happened--how could it be? It, along with the tea parties, are something Krugman and his ilk find really, truly revolting--American citizens using whatever methods they have available to voice their protest. Shockingly, this means even rich guys (or campaign workers) who wear ties can voice their opinions, too, as well as working-class folks who don't have Paul Krugman's sympathy.

Is he really trying to argue that only "spontaneous" protest is "real" protest? I guess the original tea-partiers just showed up on the deck and noticed a bunch of other guys in Indian dress--coincidentally!

What is it Obama "community organized"--"spontaneous" events?

I don't personally care for the tea party events. I don't really see the point. But unlike Krugman, I don't think it's always gotta be about me, on my terms, when people express themselves. See, Paul, just because someone doesn't have a column in a newspaper, it doesn't mean they don't have the right to speak.

As for the assertion about debate on issues, the only debates going on with Krugman's liberal buddies is how "spontaneously" they can spend taxpayer money on those who didn't earn it.

Oh, and btw, Paul's columns don't just "spontaneously" appear...

You don’t catch a lot of flak unless you’re right over the target.

Party on!

It is amazing. He just won the Nobel Prize. The Democrats have won decisively and here Krugman is trying to kick Conservatives when they are down. He must not have confidence
in the cause as applied by Obama.

[Krugman Article] ......shut down the presidential vote recount in Florida’s Miami-Dade County

Shut down Bill Daley and Al Gore from stealing a national election in broad daylight.

A bunch of Democrats were going to go count election-deciding votes in a locked room. That'll happen over our dead bodies!

I hate it when liberals lie so smoothly, when it rolls off their tongues like poisoned honey.

Last but not least: it turns out that the tea parties don’t represent a spontaneous outpouring of public sentiment.

What a half-witted statement. When do we ever see "spontaneous outpourings" taking place in dozens of different locations? Of course there's some coordination, and only a nutcase would find anything to whine about or object to. I guess Krugman's only impressed with "spontaneous outpourings" of support such as ACORN and assorted other taxpayer financed, partisan political groups.

This crap makes me very angry.

These people think they have an endless right to take by force what is not theirs.

The dream of America is quickly coming to an end because of people who think like Krugman.

I use to think there was a “silent majority” in this country that believed in property rights, individual freedom and the constitution. It is becoming painful clear I was wrong.

I did a piece on this character a while back:

-The lies of Paul Krugman-( BLAIR, BRAGG, DOWD ... KRUGMAN? ) --

He used to be halfway sane when he was an economic commentator, but when he branched out in to politics, he got kind of wacky.

I see age has not improved him any...

I’d be happier if the GOP went away forever and we had us a Tea Party ticket to run on instead.

Former Enron adviser Krugman fell for socialism, hence, he flunked reality 101 and is stuck on stupid. Anything he has to say about economics or politics is worthless.

Beyond that, Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn't feel right to make fun of crazy people. Better, perhaps, to focus on the real policy debates, which are all among Democrats.

Oh, the NYT was quick to focus on the likes of Code Pink and Cindy Sheehan. They were not only embarrassing to watch, but also insulting. This is a very lame attempt to marginalize that which he cannot ignore.
