The thing to keep in mind when considering Paul Krugman is that his purpose at the New York Times is to provide intellectual camoflage for what would otherwise rightly be seen as crude propaganda. In the social circles inhabited by the Times' remaining 15 or 20 readers, a Nobel Prize resting lightly upon the mantle conveys both unquestionable academic stature and unimpeachable character. What the heck: it worked for Al Gore, he of the drowning polar bears and inexorably rising seas.

(You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.)
This travesty which wallows in lies, innuendo, and exaggerations is so beneath the standard one has a right to expect from a Nobel prize winner publishing in the New York Times that one is confronted with the reality that Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize committee, and the New York Times have utterly prostituted their reputation to move the leftist agenda.
